What is tagging?
Referencing content using words you (or your community ) are familiar and come to mind most often.
Tags are metadata about the content.
Tags can and should be shared.
Tagging creates folksonomies
Words can be used for filtering and retrieval
Formative Activity 1
Read the accompanying article of text.
Identify three keywords (or tags) that capture the meaning of the text.
Think of these keywords as reference to searching for the article at some point in the future.
This document defines "Free Cultural Works" as works or expressions which can be freely studied, applied, copied and/or modified, by anyone, for any purpose. It also describes certain permissible restrictions that respect or protect these essential freedoms. The definition distinguishes between free works, and free licenses which can be used to legally protect the status of a free work. The definition itself is not a license; it is a tool to determine whether a work or license should be considered "free.“
Folksonomy describes the bottom-up classification systems that emerge from social tagging.
Folksonomy (from folk + taxonomy ) is a user-generated taxonomy.
