Digital Tools and Meme extra credit

As promised, here are the links to the visual tools we discussed in class. My original source for this is Poynter, if you’d like to check out their listing.


You need to add one of these tools to at least one blog post (personal or group) by the end of next week, Friday, April 13 (!!!). You must post the link to your post in a comment to this assignment.

Extra Credit:

Also, for 2 points of extra credit (that’s a blog or readings post), you can create an SOJ-specific meme and upload it as a comment to THIS post. Quickmeme is an easy to use site, but do what works for you. Please keep it reasonably friendly – we’re reflecting the School of Journalism here, after all.

    Also, here’s the meme I created for the j-school.

    I used wordle as well here

  8. Here’s my interactive timeline, courtesy of Dipity. Unfortunately I’m having serious difficulties getting it embedded on my blog. 😦

    In my post about Pub Trivia, I used a wordle to represent what words are used a lot in trivia questions. Unfortunately, the wordle image is small and if I try to increase the size it gets blurry, but it works nicely as a link, at least.

    I did not get a chance to post this Thursday, but here is my post with a wordcloud from Wordle –
