Create a Word Cloud in Google Docs

Google has added a lot of interesting Add-On's for Google Docs.  One of the newest that I have come across is Tag Cloud Generator. Using a word cloud in writing is a wonderful idea for students. Students are able to visually see if what words they used the most and make adjustments.

To use Word Cloud Generator:

  1. Open a Google Doc document
  2. Click Add-On from the toolbar
  3. Choose: Get Add-Ons...
  4. In the search box, type Tag Cloud Generator and press enter
  5. Click the blue free box to add it your Docs
  6. Click Add-On
  7. Choose Tag Cloud Generator
  8. Click on Create Tag Cloud
  9. On the right side of the screen, the tag cloud will appear
