Hello people !!

A big virtual hello to all you Didactique-bloggers,

I strongly believe that the world's growing more and more virtual with each passing day. As future teachers, you will be expected to be at ease using a few tools on the Internet, you will be expected to help your students know, understand and if possible, appreciate these tools .....

Let's hope that the practical approach we will be adopting this semester will allow you to master just a few basic things ...

Happy blogging and happy podcasting ... :-)

Let the fireworks begin !!!!!

Trying out Wordle

1. Go to the Wordle homepage on:  www.wordle.net 
2. Click on Create
3. Write all the words you had decided to teach with Flickr. Write your title word (for ex: if you were teaching "animals", "animals" is your title word) several times.
4. Click on GO to see Wordle create your word list.
5. At the bottom of your created wordle list, you will see an icon "Ramdomize". Click on that to change the way in which your words can look. You can also change the font, colour, layout etc. (look above the list).
6. When you've decided what you want your list to look like, click on "Open in window". A new window will open. 
7. IF YOU WISH and you know how to, you could then take a screenshot and upload the picture on your blog. 
Happy Wordling !!

TIP: Java needs to enabled in its latest version for this to work.... that's why we couldn't do it in class!
