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>WiAOC09 for Webheads in Action Online Convergence 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>ITValley for the NileTESOL conference event </li></ul><ul><li>This presentation shows some of the ways these tags can aggregate content online. </li></ul>
