Our chat session with the students from La Plata

We had our first chat session today with Jóvenes 4 MA. As every first experience there were inconvenients but I'd dare say the result was quite good.

Fortunately, Miss Patricia joined us first and was then replaced by Miss Antonella.

I wouldn't have been able to do it without their help. Thanks a lot to both of them!

And here are some photographs:

You will find here our new blog. We will publish our answers to the questions and doubts the students and teachers from Brazil have about our country.

We'll first introduce ourselves. The teacher from Brazil has already left a comment.

* Please, send me your e-mails so that I can invite you as authors of this blog.

Today you'll play with a web-tool called tag cloud.

We can use tag clouds to know how often words are repeated in a text; we can visualize word frequency.

It's very easy to use; you just have to copy a text and paste it in the site and, after that, copy the embedding code and paste it in a post to be published in your blog.

Here's one of the sites you can use: http://www.wordle.net/

  • Go there and click on "create".
  • You can either choose to give your blog's url or paste the text of one of your post -your description for example.
  • Once you've done it, you can choose the colour, font, layout (horizontal, vertical), etc. You'll find these option on top of the word cloud.
  • Save it.
  • Get the code where it says "Paste this code into your blog or home page to link to this Wordle:"
I've created a word cloud with 3rd year's blog. Look!

  • How do you like it?
