Tagging your post

Tagging requires visual literacy.

Part of your grade for this assignment will be your ability to describe your cartoon and blog post with tags.

Have you ever noticed how hard it can be to find an image on the web? That is often because people do not describe images very well. Tagging your images is a visual literacy skill.

As you think about describing and tagging your posts...

  • a Caption is a brief and descriptive sentence that appears below your image.
  • Tags: make items more discoverable
    • Tagging images allows others to use logical natural language to discover images - images would be unsearchable without tags or metadata.
    • Use them to adequately and thoroughly describe your cartoon and post
    • Use the other tags in the blog -from this semester and semesters past - to make connections within the blog (so a user could find all cartoons or posts that talk about the Depression, for example)
