Tag Galaxy

Another way into a topic (particularly modern day) is through tag galaxy . It is a way students can get a visual impression of a topic.  I would give students a starting tag or two get them to see how the search reduces and then describe what they think the  topic is about based on the photos. Check out this one using Industrial revolution and England as tags.

One thought on “Tag Galaxy

  1. Hi, this is a great resource. I love the idea of a tag galaxy- it is a really interesting way in to a topic. Visuals are usually more immediately engaging but the 3D adds a whole new way of looking at the topic.
