Here are pictures of some of the odds and ends left around on Schome Park when it closed at the end of Phase 3.

Data analysis

Data analysis tends to go on in the background and not get written up in the wiki, so I though I'd mention it for a change. I'm currently working on the chat logs of eight events, together with associated videos, forum postings, wiki pages, Photobucket pictures etc - looking at the levels of knowledge-age skills displayed in each.

I've just been generating tag clouds of some of the data using Wordle. Here's an example from a chat log of a Time Explorers discussion about Roman Roads. The more frequently a word was used, the larger it appears (if you look carefully, Dr Who is in there somewhere). Fox
