Hey world. Ron Mader here with the Parks Web 2.0 webinar. Today is September 20th. 2011. Our favorite buzz words for the day are Flicker posts, live streaming and wikificatio. Look at the links to find out what they mean on http://planeta.wikispaces.com/parksweb2 Throughout this week we're looking at about 20 different web 2.0 channels.

Hi Village A Students. To create a grammar wordle you're gonna go to Wordle.net. That's W O R D L E and then you're going to go to create your own which is about 1/3 the way down the page and after you clicked on that you are going to enter a bunch of words that you think relate to grammar. If you want a word to show up larger than the other words then you want to type that word in more times and after you are satisfied with everything you've typed in that relates to grammar you'll gonna click go and once you've clicked go you have a bunch of options of how you want your Wordle to look. You can change the font, the size, the color and you can play around with that makes you look however you'd like and then once you satisfied with that you like how it looks you'll gonna go ahead and print your Wordle which you can go to file at the top and then print and make sure you bring that into class on Wednesday, August 25th. I will see you all then. Bye.
