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. If you do a quick search for word cloud, you’ll see so many different types. Do you have a favorite word cloud generator from the list below?

The KDE Education Project - The KDE Education Project Experimentskafferiet Open Office 4 Kids: versione semplificata di Open Office per bambini e ragazzi Pubblicato da Alberto Open Office 4 Kids (OOo4Kids) è la suite di Open Office pensata per bambini e ragazzi. Si tratta di una versione di Open Offce pensata infatti per la fascia di età che va dai 7 ai 14 anni. Disponibile per ora in Inglese, Francese, Spagnolo, Tedesco e Portoghese, si spera possa essere distribuita gratuitamente presto anche in Italiano. Al momento è disponibile solo la release 0.5, vale a dire una versione ancora acerba che col tempo sarà migliorata e ottimizzata per renderla sempre più “amichevole” ai bambini. Le differenze principali tra Open Office e Open Office 4 Kids sta nella leggerezza e nella mancanza delle funzioni più complicate (meno barre e bottoni, interfaccia grafica più pulita, rapidità di esecuzione). E’ dunque una suite semplificata derivata dalla principale che per la sua facilità d’uso potrebbe piacere anche agli adulti e soprattutto potrebbe essere gradita al mondo della scuola e agli insegnanti Correlati 31 luglio 2010 In "blog" 19 maggio 2009

Charles Darwin | Allt om Historia Under en världsomsegling insåg Charles Darwin hur livet på jorden hade utvecklats. Hans teori om evolutionen var lika enkel som genial, men kastade samtidigt Bibelns skapelseberättelse över ända och mötte hårt motstånd. Text: Anna Larsdotter I augusti 1831 fick Charles Darwin ett brev som skulle förändra hans liv. Avsändare var hans vän John Stevens Henslow, professor i botanik i Cambridge. Av Henslow hade Darwin lärt sig massor om sitt stora intresse: djur och växter. I brevet frågade Henslow om Darwin ville följa med på en forskningsseglats runt jorden. Så gav sig Charles Robert Darwin den 27 december 1831 av på sitt livs resa. Darwin växte upp med en äldre bror och fyra systrar. Charles Darwin var inte av riktigt samma skrot och korn som sin far och farfar. Han hade lärt sig att stoppa upp djur och byggt upp en imponerande samling skalbaggar. Darwin fascinerades av de arter han hittade på ögruppen. Darwins anteckningar från resan med Beagle var fyllda av entusiastiska utrop.
