    Murph, I really liked the ""Gesture Computing Video". Great resources!

Prezi - Ideas matter. - 0 views

    Very simple to convert old power point presentations to this format, and much more interesting for the audience to watch.
    This is a great way to change up presentations from the traditional power point format. Working on converting one now, and will share with the group when completed.
    This looks like a much better way to present information, especially to high school age students, than the traditional power point format. I am in the process of creating a brief prezi on European schools of art, that I hope to share when I am finished. Hopefully it can be used whenever you reference a school of art from the Renaissance to Post-Impressionism, to give an historical perspective of where that particular school fits.

8 Word Cloud Makers for teachers - 1 views

    • Guess the book – works great when you have access to the text of famous books via sites such as Project Gutenberg.
    • Use to introduce a topic – pupils could guess what they will be learning about from a word cloud made of keywords.
    • Comparing different newspapers – look at the same story in a Broadsheet and a tabloid newspaper (website) and compare the wordle clouds produced – how do the words used differ?
    • Self-reflection on work – as Wordle makes a word larger the more frequently it is used, pupils will be able to see at a glance which words or phrases they are over-using. Are they using the word Nice or Good too often?
    • Use to analyse the content and gist a longer written text, especially with exam or higher level groups
    • To introduce new vocabulary or to memorise new vocabulary/vocabulary lists
    • Revision of key topics and vocabulary – pupils can create their own worldes or they can be given them to use
    • To give presentations without reading from a sheet and just using prompts
    • Encouraging creative writing from a selection of key words from a word cloud
    This article helped me understand Wordle's uses in the classroom a bit more.  Originally shared by Dennis O'Connor - Thanks!  Initially, I was finding Wordle as a frivolous toy.  This article made it seem more worth while, and interesting enough to want to utilize it beyond my initial personal word cloud.
