You all have heard of Wordle, and some of you maybe even Tagxedo. Both pale in comparison to the word wall cloud maker Tagul! When used in conjunction with a simple Google Form, kids can independently enter target academic vocabulary, and the link they want to attach to it (a website, a YouTube video, a video they've created and uploaded to Drive...anything with a URL), and with a simple copy/paste on your end, you'll have an embeddable, beautiful word cloud for your website, complete with fancy mouse over animations, custom colors and, unlike Wordle or Tagxedo, the ability for each word in your word cloud to be a link an online resource. Serious wow factor with infinite applications!
Note: For Step 2 above, you might notice instead of "view responses," it says "choose response destination." That's fine! Simply click on that, then select "create a new spreadsheet" and leave the always create new spreadsheet selected, as noted below.
