8th Grader's Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words

8th Graders are working hard to develop their Google Sites in their Tech Classes. One of the things we are working on is making their Sites unique to themselves and to give the viewer a better idea of who they are. To help accomplish this, students needed to download a picture of themselves, use a photo editing program (BeFunky) to add a filter to their picture to make it more abstract. From there, they needed to upload it into "Tagul", an online tool which creates word clouds. After carefully creating a word list which included their interests, likes, and words that describe themselves, the students created unique word clouds in their image. Here are a few GREAT examples. Try to guess who they are!!
