Hello ICT Leaders. Today's challenge to gather statistical information and report this information visually using a Web 2.0 tool called Wordle. You do not require a login for using Wordle but your device does require Java.
Gather Data from your peers
You will use a tally chart to gather information from your classmates. Below is an assortment of topics you can research. Select the one that appeals to you most and go about gathering your data.
Use the information you gathered to create your Wordle. Type the words with a comma after... type in the word the total number of times you have recorded it. e.g. dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, cat, cat, cat, rat, fish, fish. This list represents 5 dogs, 3 cats, a rat and 2 fish.
Make your own choices in regards to layout, colour, font style etc. When you are happy with your statistical Wordle, save it to your folder as a .png and then upload to your blog.
Below is a Thinglink... of my dog Buddy containing tags of information about him (his autobiography). As you 'hover' over the image, tags will appear with the information about him.
Your challenge is to make your own Thinglink... Autobiography.
