The #4wordpedagogy phenomenon.

Towards the end of last week I came across a tweet by Jesse Stommel the tweet read:

Join me by writing some 4-word pedagogy statements. :) https://twitter.com/jessifer/status/726424167420145664 …#4wordpedagogy

You can read about this in a bit more detail in his Storify

Over 4000 tweets later #4wordpedagogy has become a bit of a phenomenon, so I thought I would start capturing it visually.

Below is a gallery of images based on some of the data, but I have also been experimenting with Tableau as part of some visualisation work on a paper I am writing.

Tableau allows me to embed the data into a web page like this:

<a href=’#’><img alt=’Sheet 1 ‘ src=’https:&#47;&#47;public.tableau.com&#47;static&#47;images&#47;4e&#47;4epedagogy&#47;Sheet1&#47;1_rss.png’ style=’border: none’ /></a>

If you are having trouble viewing the embedded data you can access it here: https://public.tableau.com/views/4epedagogy/Sheet1?:embed=y&:display_count=yes&:showTabs=y

I am hoping that this means the data is now less “static”. In this data model I have merely extracted the number of mentions each person has received based on the #4wordpedagogy hashtag activity. Roll your mouse over the circles to find out who they are.

You can also see a list of twitter users on the right. Scroll down to see them all, but this is the key to the colour coding.

The static images I have previously shared are also below: (Data set as of 2nd May 2016).
