Day One at TRLD

It’s early in the TRLD conference, and I’m teaching a Web 2.0 workshops. We are starting off with Blogs, and I’m writing this one to demonstrate the ease at which you can post each blog article. The writing part, of course, is the hard part.

Most of the audience is awake, and wish that they were attending Learning at a Distance; or Click! Create! Communicate! Cameras, iPhoto, and Comic Life; or Funding your Dreams: Grant Writing in the Information Age, or any of a number of other pre-conference workshops taking place today.

But we’ve just gotten started.

One tip, however, and I wish I could remember what commenter mentioned this, but in many cases we would prefer not to have our students names in their blogs. This reader suggested using a anagram generator to create pseudonyms for students, based on the letters of their names. The site that he uses is Wordsmith’s Anagram tool.

So here’s to you,

It was Adrian Bruce, educator and photographer in Australia, who shared with me the use of anagram generators to give our young writers their very first pseudonym.
