Tonight I'm doing some survey response analysis for the introductory course in the MEd program at school, and as I was grouping interviewees by age and skimming over their responses it dawned on me that I was doing a mental word frequency analysis and that there might be a more efficient and fun way to do this. Following that train of thought, I quickly recalled Wordle, the Java applet that does makes so-called "tag clouds" out of any text you give it. So I fired up the site, enabled Java and, voilà:

Wordle: 20-30-Q1

That's the word cloud for how elementary school students responded when asked about what teachers do. Nifty!
