REAL TIME TAGGING AND WORD CLOUDS
This real time tagging method devised as an strategy for active watching.
This method is designed to sample in real time several aspects of the experience of observing/watching the video: words, images, feelings, sensations, etc.
Any relevant aspect of the experience that can be represented with a key word.
The resultant list of individual and collective keywords is visualized using the online software Wordle:http://www.wordle.net/
This activity has two phases. Do them each week, using the appropriate section of interview.
Phase 1: Real Time Tagging:
Prepare to watch the conversation with your favorite text editing software open.
While you watch, write key words sampled from your experience: direct quotes, sensations, feelings, concepts, associations. Do not worry about recording the time code for each tag.
Write as much as you can.
YOUR TAGS SHOULD ONLY BE ONE WORD LONG.
It is OK to repeat words
Share your list, copying and pasting as a response in this thread
Phase 2: Word Cloud Visualization of the COLLECTIVE experienc
Go to the website http://www.wordle.net/ (note that the website does not work on Chrome)
-Click on CREATE
In another browser window, return to this discussion thread. Copy all of the tag responses to this post.
-Go back to wordle and Paste them into the white box labled “Paste in a bunch of text:”
-click on “GO”.
-It will take few seconds to process and it will show you a graphic. You may need to install a java applet if the browser asks you.
See example with the key words from the “GIVE” thread:
You will have a resulting image like so:
play with different settings and change the output:
-When you are finished with your word cloud, please click "save to a public gallery" and fill out the form
-When you are done filling out the form, it will give you embedding code from your image
It will look like this.
title="Wordle: Give from minded motion"><img
alt="Wordle: Give from minded motion"
style="padding:4px;border:1px solid #ddd"></a>
-Copy this code and post it in this thread: click HTML before pasting: which you can find in the upper right corner of your reply/post window.
It will look like this:
You can also play with the visualization of your personal list of work and see the differences with the collective list of words.
Read it and see what themes emerges....
Did you see the same results without the visualization?
What relations do you find with your work?
If you want to participate the conversation join the meta-academy group!
