10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried

A few days back, we looked at five great ways to incorporate word cloud generators into your classroom. There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list. (Of note, the list is in no particular order).

The vast majority of them work the same: plug your text into the box, select a few options, and you’ve got yourself a word cloud. Some offer more options than others, some offer word clouds with words going in any and all directions, some offer shapes, others create much simpler word clouds.

If you do a quick search for word cloud, you’ll see so many different types. Look at which ones draw your eye the most. My recommendation would be to pick some test text to use, and paste it into each one of the text boxes for the tools below to see what will garner the result you’re looking for visually, and go from there.

Do you have a favorite word cloud generator from the list below? Weigh in by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page.
