Ignite

As Ignite‘s site says:

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers.

Check out “How to Work a Crowd,” an Ignite presentation by way of the Lifehacker blog.  Very cool way to run a presentation to try in class.

Wordle of Our Delicious Bookmarks

As the Wordle site says:

“Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.

I decided to create a Wordle of dc3fr2’s delicious tags (as of 8/30/09).  The result is below.  Tom Barrett created an excellent GoogleDocs presentation: Thirty-Eight Interesting Ways to Use Wordle in the Classroom.
