Here are some guidelines regarding the task you have to do for this week:
Remember, the goal is to introduce yourself using keywordsthat describe you best.
Warning: you need to make sure that you have silverlight on your computer for tagxedo to work!
If you really can’t get it to work, don’t worry: make a list of 20 words or expressions on a piece of paper.
Use the worksheets we worked on in class (new words, expressions etc)!
Go to tagxedo.com
In the top right hand corner, click on “create“
Select a shape (you can even upload any shape you choose, or even a picture of yourself!) The shape is part of your project, you’ll have to explain why you chose it…
Click on “theme” and choose a set of colors for your picture. The colors have to represent you as well. For example, if you’re a very girly girl, choose a set of pinks; if you love the sea and the ocean, choose a set of blues…
Click on “load”, go to “enter text” and enter your keywords (At least 20 words!!): for example “America, NY, impatient, trustworthy, funny, reading, series” etc.
Save your work (you can send it to me via pronoteor bring it to class on a flashdrive(USB memory stick), or PRINTit.
There you have it! You’re now ready to practice for your oral presentation!
(Ex: Hi, my name’s X. I’m a little impatient but I can also be silly sometimes! My friends can count on me, I’m very trustworthy: I never reveal secrets. I’m quite stubborn: I don’t like changing my mind once it’s made up. I love playing board games like 7 wonders, but what I prefer is watching series on TV….)
