- How does tagging foster the exchange of learning, teaching ideas and design.
- What makes a good tag?
- Should tags form a restricted vocabularly?
- When is it appropriate to tag?
For those people unfamiliar with tagging here is an informative starting point provided by JISC.

Nuala and others
I find myself still rather undecided about the whole question of tagging, let alone whether it can function in a teaching and learning context. I think i am going to have to wimp out at present, and try to master 'how to' first as an individual teacher and learner. Then perhaps I will be able to see how it might be used more collaboratively. I note that your 'Educase' link makes a point of mentioning it in terms of 'teaching and learning' which does rather suggest that this is a 'coming' use.
Thanks again for your reference to the Educase link. The 'scenario' was perhaps the first discussion of tagging/social bookmarking which I have come across which made any kind of sense at all as to why the whole idea might be worthwhile. I recognise that first academic!
