First, build your blog or join this wiki...

You will have most fun with the online module if you create your own blog at Blogger.com, with a post for each tool, so you can save, remember and share the resources you create! It is a requirement for this module that you share the links to your completed resources, so if you would prefer to share them within this wiki, rather than creating a blog, apply to elizabeth.chase@det.nsw.edu.au for wiki membership.

Nola Bullivant....

Students in 6G used Wordle as a brainstorm for their HSIE/SCIENCE unit of work on 'Antartica'.
Both students and teachers enjoyed it very much. Many interesting words were used in relation to the topic and the visual representations created further discussion. Students' Wordles are now on displayed in the library.

I typed in the ten main Dewey categories plus Fiction. Categories from which I have personally borrowed least often, appear in larger print. I would intend to ue this with students in Year 4 and upwards as part of learning about the Dewey system. Students could browse the shelves to remind themselves of books in these categories, create their own Dewey Wordle then aim to increase their borrowing from the categories appearing in larger text in their Wordle.
