UK County Word Cloud project
« on: May 31, 2017, 07:59:28 PM »
Alan Parkinson has been spending half term with another cracking idea! Using Facebook he has asked people to submit 5 or so words they associate with "Cornwall". he created a word cloud using WordArt with the results.

Alan is expanding the project and hopes to create a word cloud for each county! Can you help? It takes a few seconds and I am sure the results will be very interesting. They will be shared on

This is an excellent idea, especially for the new A level content on places - perceptions and identity.
We did some interviews to get people to share their views on places and would be good to swap/share these about other places. We did Torrington in Devon, as our local place but we have also study Bristol as our contrasting place so would be great if someone has any interview/info on what people think of Bristol

Bump... now over 400 responses but room for hundreds more... Another end of term activity perhaps :)
