Obama's Speech on Education Today...

I "Wordled" Obama's Education speech today and while I didn't hear it live, I believe that using Wordle as a focusing tool helps me understand what the major points of his speech are. I'm excited to see words like "innovation" and "investments" represented, as well as seeing the frequency with which he used the words "college," "responsibility," "children," and "teachers." I love that Wordle allows me to think "out of context" and paint a picture of meaning that gives me a knowledge base to more fully comprehend the text when I read it.
