Visual learning

It is great to create some downtime – especially after sorting out the accounts for the taxman!  Thinking about how different adults learn, I found a picture of the key words used in Obama’s inauguration speech and awarded myself a few minutes to play with Wordle, the program that had been used.  The result of my work, with words taken from the ElementE front page and a border added using Picnik, are shown below. It took far less time to create the image than to write this blog post and got an instant ‘Oh, I see’ from a visitor who had just looked at the original webpage as ‘yet another’ web page.  The approach needs refining and can  be adapted – perhaps with the result used as a template for a 3D medium – but, for ten minutes downtime and with thanks to IBM’s Jonathan Feinberg who created Wordle, it works.
