Google’s Wonder Wheel and Writing

Google Wonder Wheel and Writing

I was reading a post from my friend, ProBlogger, about ww2Google’s Wonder Wheel. It is much like Visual Thesaurus in the connections it makes between topics and ideas. It’s the lists Google includes at the bottom of a search, but more visual, for those of us who like pictures instead of words.

Reminds me of a friend I chatted with. He’s a genius and I needed to characterize a ‘genius’ in a story I was writing. He liked data–but not graphs. Said he didn’t like to have the conclusions drawn for him. He wanted to see the flow of numbers and reach his own connections.

For those of us not quite so brilliant, Wonder Wheel seems a good option. and–teachers take notice. It would be a great tool to inspire thinking in your students.
