Digital Literacy Challenge #3

The third digital literacy challenge asks you to use a web 2.0 tool called wordle. Wordle creates word clouds based on text that you paste in to it. Here is my wordle of President Obama's remarks on election night (please note, you can click on it to make it larger):

Wordle: Election Night

Your challenge is to go to the The Miller Center Presidential Archive and select a speech. Copy and paste the full text of the speech and go to Wordle. Click the "create" tab at the top and paste your text in.

To show that you've entered the contest, after you've created your wordle, you'll need to click the link that says "Save to Public Gallery." Please email me the link! Or, you can add a comment below with your name and your link.

This challenge will run until March 12th. Please feel free to ask any questions.
