From Silvia Tolisano on Twitter to Paul Hamilton's blog to you. Here's an interactive way to view images about different places and things. It's called Tag Galaxy and it's a marvelous way to find and display images on your SMART Board.
After you enter a keyword or tag, Tag Galaxy displays a big planet that's being orbited by other potential tag planets. Click (or touch) one of the orbiting planets to refine your image search. When you're finished adding tags (planets), you can click on the big planet and it will display photos from Flickr that match your selection. You can then rotate the planet to view the different images that match your tags. When you find a picture you like, you can click on it to enlarge it.
If you're doing a lesson on Spring flowers…
Here's a Tag Galaxy for Alberta, Calgary that displays the other planets (tags) that will help you refine your selection…
This website is an absolute joy to use on your SMART Board and it's definitely a site that should be shared with the other teachers in your school.
Thank you Silvia and Paul and everyone else who has shared this resource with others!
Sharing is Caring!
