Using Visual Poetry tool to mess with the message
Then from my Twitter feed I saw a link to Stephen Downes recent presentation on Connectivism, MOOCs and Innovation. His keynote presentation was embedded and I started to flip through. Slide 13 caught my eye (not just the cat!).

This tool could be used for Language and Literacy purposes. Keeping people engaged as they struggle with a new language through play. It could also be used for children. From simple vocabulary there could be very interesting drawings created. For myself I like that fact of being able to put words into a different angle, pattern and colour. It helps the brain to think around the corners of the very familiar word structures.
To answer my own questions: I bothered! It's not all about me, maybe someone else might benefit from my own learning. I really like the learning process as described by Downes (2016) and want to see how this can play out in the future.
My next challenge is how to feed this forward. This process of blogging is the best way I know how (for now) as it can reach into vast corners of the interconnected web that we may never reach into with our bare head or hands.
