It has been a long time since I have posted something on my blog, so I decided it was about time to write a new post, so here we go...
It has come to a time where the end of yet another school year is coming close. Grade 7 has been quite a fun year for me, with many new opportunities and challenges. You might remember that I worked on some Kinetic Typography pieces a few months back. Well, just yesterday, I was helping a group of this year's Grade 6 students make their own typographies. It was really interesting to see their ideas, and also to refresh my knowledge on some typography skills as well! I have also followed a "Growing Up Digital" course this year, and learnt some new things about online safety and digital learning tools. One of them I quite like is a web tool called Tagxedo. This tool allows you to create "word clouds" that make visualizing a bunch of text easier. Give it a go!
By the way, have you noticed the "RSS Feed" button near the top of the page? If you click that, the link in the address bar can be copied and pasted into a service called Google Reader or into most mail programs. This way, you will be notified whenever I write a new post! You can do the same with other blogs and websites, as long as they have a link to their RSS feed!
