The new Collins English Dictionary is out now – see it brought to life #homeoflivingenglish

I wonder if there is a word for turning a word into an image?  An ambigram is one way of doing that but not quite what I mean…. and then there are the new word clouds that you can make into images in programs like Tagxedo.   And I wonder what the implications are for learning literacy?  Would it be useful to learn some words as image-words?

If you think of what the word might be, let me know 🙂

This fabulous video is scribed by Scriberia – their site is great!

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
