Using tagclouds in teaching
Cloud created by:

As tools like Wordle and Tagul have become availble as an alternative way of presenting ideas, I wonder how these tools might be used in teaching. I have been at a number of conferences recently where tagclouds have been generated as a means of summarising visually the discussions at the conference and in particular highlighting the key and most discussed ideas. As a conference this week someone said they used it with students where English was not their native language, as a means of presenting the main ideas in Business case studies.
Thanks Gill very interesting to explore the different ways in which these tools can be used:
- Means of summarising key points around a collective discussion
- Enabling students to focus on key features or learning points for a text
- As part of qualitiative analysis.
