This workshop is not menat to cover all aspects of tagging by any means- for that, check our resources
. No, we are going to jump in quickly, do some tagging, and hopefully experience the "aha" moment of what happens when we tag content together. What we hope to reveal is:
- Tagging For Myself - using tags to organize information for your own scheme. Choice of tags don't matter much, you have full control over what is included, and use tools to republish a dynamic updated list to other web sites
- Tagging With Others - using more generalized tags (plus/minus secondary tags to filter) to build resource collections as a group, or to see what all users have identified by the same tag. Choice of tags bears thought as it needs to be original yet memorable.
- Exploring Tag Paths - Discovering new content by browsing by tag, by user, through contacts/networks.
To experience tagging, I have set up two, well three, things you can try- in our workshop there may not be time to try all, but this site is yours to come back to and explore.
