Tag games: How to use #tags in professional and language development
Presentation abstract
This session introduces the concept of #tags and empowers participants to exploit their power in professional and language development. The session presents examples where #tags are used in language learning, and by teachers pursuing professional development; notably by using them effectively at conferences such as this one. There are often delegates attending conferences who use #tags to share content conference-wide with others following the tagged feeds, often in Twitter. The presenter will show participants how they can use #glocall2021 at this conference to share commentary across parallel sessions and create back-channels for discussion throughout the conference. To illustrate, we play a number of “#tag games” to create a set of tagged objects that participants can retrieve instantaneously through techniques learned at the workshop. We then extend our games to show how this can extrapolate to language learning; e.g. a project where teachers around the world had their students blog content online, and then find one another anywhere in the world using the tag #writingmatrix. Through exploration and using the tools to recapture what they have learned, teachers will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of tagging and its possibilities in language learning and in their networked professional development.
