My friend and colleague, Trish Dower has tagged me for this meme, started by Lee Kolbert at “A GeekyMomma’s Blog”. If you haven’t used this fun toy before, it uses any passage of text (either typed in, or copied from a blog URL or other source) to create these word clouds. Words that appear more frequently in the text appear more prominently in the cloud. I would have liked to have seen ‘students’ appear more prominently, but I think this wordle reflects my journey over the past ten months, exploring web 2.0 tools, finding what works for science teachers and learners and sharing with my readers. One of the main reasons I blog is that I find it very convenient to have one place to store my resources, tagged with a picture for easy recognition. Blogging also helps me to reflect on my daily practise and hopefully improve my teaching strategies.
1. Create a Wordle from your blog’s RSS feed.
2. Blog it and describe your reaction. Any surprises?
3. Tag others to do the same.
