Published on

This workshop empowers participants to utilize tagging in professional development and language learning. Participants learn how students can find one another anywhere in the world by agreeing on a common tag, like 'writingmatrix'. We explore several tools for retrieving tagged content online and see how this applies to language learning.

Tag Games: Using tags in professional and language development

  1. 1. Tag Games: Using tags in professional and language development Vance Stevens A presentation adapted for BrazTESOL, Sao Paulo 2010 http://braz2010vance.pbworks.com/TagGames July 21, 2010
  2. 2. Originally done February 3, 2010 NileTESOL AUC Skills Conference <ul><li>This presentation was made originally for a lecture and workshop at the NileTESOL AUC Skills Conference from 14:00 to 16:00 GMT Feb 3, 2019 </li></ul><ul><li>The entire presentation has lecture and hands-on components. What you see here is a quick run through the hands-on part. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Very important: Your tag <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>evomlit for the EVO2010 Multiliteracies course </li></ul><ul><li>writingmatrix for a recent Webheads in Action international writing project </li></ul><ul><li>brazTESOL10 for the Sao Paulo conference event </li></ul><ul><li>This presentation shows some of the ways these tags can aggregate content online. </li></ul>
