Creating a digital profile Step One

strawberriesLast week I blogged about my plan to create digital profiles with my year 11 home group and my reasons why. I mapped out a plan. Today was my first opportunity to action that plan. I had 30 minutes before the assembly. The good thing about technology is you are able to get real power out of a short space of time if you have to. I loaded up my blog post on the whiteboard because it had the links to job skills, digital profiles, e-portfolios and the comic strip templates. I talked a bit about how I could improve my own profile which was shown now I had thought about it. I gave them 2 other links:

Tagxedo so they could make a text based tag cloud to take a screen shot of.

Tag Galaxy so they could make an image based tag cloud but I show them just how interactive it was if they wanted to use it for other purposes.

We also learned about QR codes and QR code readers. Some students couldn’t read the web address from the board. My blog just happens to have a QR Code. I just happened to have my iPad with a QR code reader and I showed them how to do that. So some had loaded the post straight to their phones for future reference or took it off their phones to put onto their MacBooks.

What the students responded to immediate was the fact Tagxedo had a Facebook page which we could look at. Then they just enjoyed making visual and text tag clouds of themselves. They were very absorbed and one boy had to remind us we needed to be off to the assembly!
