How can you use geo-media to capture a sense of place ?

A group challenge for today's geo-media event....
This is linked to the idea of 'PLACE'

Add 5 words to the linoit canvas which sum up Salzburg for you.

How can we visualise these words ?
How representative will the views be ?
Which 'voices' are missing from the list...

Have a look at Tagxedo which allows the creation of word clouds in particular shapes, for example...

Explore the tools in Triptico - particularly Word Magnets as an alternative....

One of the benefits of technology is the way that it can enable experiences to be shared with others who were unable to go along on the visit...

Google World Wonders as a model for exploring places....

How can we share Salzburg with others ?

Create a resource which can be shared with the group at 4pm
This should link to the idea of place...

How could we use geo-media to introduce students to Salzburg ?
What fieldwork projects could you carry out in the city ?
Plan an activity which could be used back in your own school / institution on the theme of exploring the city.
How could students use mobile devices while they were in the city ?

And finally, take a look at Mission Explore

There is also the FACEBOOK FRIENDS STORIES map 

Here's a link to the FLICK GROUP for the image competition entries...
