Word Collage
by Alex Tataurov
Word College is best used as a mini project within a larger lesson plan. Word walls are often used by many professions as inspiration and for project brainstorming. Using a Word College image to present or display the student’s own writing is an exciting way to end a project. Students can also create a representation of a web source for a research paper.

In Word Collage students can present their own words, others’ text, or even pull words from a website. By rendering a collage of related words, the project will provide a visual that can improve the learner’s understanding of a concept or theme.

How It Works?
What makes Word College such an effective classroom tool, is its ease of use. With a simple and clear interface, the app can work as fast as the student’s typing ability will allow.

Troubleshooting
Students can get confused about why common words like “of” and “the” (prepositions and articles) are included into their collage. You can adjust the common words in settings to be set as “don’t exclude.” However, it does make for a more insight full collage for the app to only use significant and unique words.
