Re: [multilit] Re: Tagging in Action at ITValley10
- Hi again,
As promised to the people in Cairo last night I just went through my slides
and brought each link up in delicious and tagged each with a tag set
including ITValley10 and evomlit
Some other tags used included niletesol itvalley10 evomlit evo evo10 evo2010
vancestevens tagging aggregation speedgeeking webheadsinaction speedgeek
search imagesearch images pics &etc.
As a result you can visit http://delicious.com/tag/ITValley10 and find all
the links used in the two presentations, the one mentioned in the slide show
(the speedgeek, with link to recorded presentation given in the slideshow)
and the 2-hour session given Feb 3, 2010 at
This whole process is meant to illustrate the power of tagging for streaming
content strewn over the apparently (but not) chaotic Internet and directing
it right at learners.
I was asked repeatedly in the presentation last night to give illustrations
of how these concepts could be used with classes of students. Tagging sites
you want them to visit in Delicious (as I've done here) is one way, and all
of the links so tagged give other examples of tools you can use to do
exactly that. In order to follow the logic you need to think of the
audience at NileTESOL as being a class of students, and did we show them how
to use tagging in their classrooms? You judge ;-)
Thanks all who attended, watched the recordings later, and played the F.U.N.
