Transcript

  • 1. Tag Games: Using tags in professional and language development Vance Stevens A SpeedGeek presentation prepared especially for Webheads, http://webheads.info and the Multiliteracies EVO session at http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com Jan 24, 2010
  • 2. NileTESOL AUC Skills Conference February 3, 2010 – 14:00 GMT
    • This presentation was made partially in rehearsal for a lecture and workshop at the NileTESOL AUC Skills Conference from 14:00 to 16:00 GMT Feb 3, 2019
    • The entire presentation has lecture and hands-on components. What you see here is a quick run through the hands-on part.
      • LECTURE Talking about Tags: How they work, why they're useful -- introduces the concept of tags, relating it to what participants already know about tagging (e.g. photos in Facebook). I will show how teachers can exploit tags when having their students create content online; for example, how students can find one another anywhere in the world by agreeing on a common tag, like 'writingmatrix'. I will show how projects (for example, conferences) can accumulate internet content about the project when participants use tags, and how all this can be applied to language learning.
      • HANDS-ON Tag Games: Using tags in professional and language development -- Here participants will go on to some web sites where objects can be tagged and use online tools to find the objects that other participants have tagged.
  • 3. Very important: Your tag
    • In order to aggregate content for your group or event, you must first establish a common tag that everyone will use on objects that can be tagged; e.g.
    • evomlit for the EVO2010 Multiliteracies course
    • WiAOC09 for Webheads in Action Online Convergence 2009
    • ITValley for the NileTESOL conference event
    • This presentation shows some of the ways these tags can aggregate content online.
  • 4. Google Image Search http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&source=hp&q=evomlit&gbv=2&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g10
  • 5. Flickr and Tag Galaxy
    • Flickr http://flickr.com displays items according to tags that users give their pics and those of others
    • Tag Galaxy http://taggalaxy.com creates a tag planet on which are arrayed tagged Flickr photos

  • 13. Any others?
    • Participants were asked to use the whiteboard to write in any other aggregation tools that you find productive … some people suggested:
    • Pageflakes
    • Netvibes
    • Protopage
    • Yahoo Pipes
    • But it was pointed out that these all require some setup; whereas those mentioned here aggregate automatically, without setup.
