Target Audience

ESL/EFL teachers, with some experience in using Internet tools in teaching

(familiarity with word processors and the basics of Internet navigation),

who would like to use blogs with their classes or for reflective practice.

Content Description

A weblog or blog is a an online journal that can be easily and instantly

updated. This online session will begin with a short review of the EVO 2004

session on blogs in ESL/EFL - in which participants explored possible uses

and learned how to create their own blogs - and proceed to examine a broader

scope of the various blogging tools and how they could be put to use with

ESL/EFL learners. Participants will start their own blogs and become

familiar with the possibilities that RSS, aggregation software, and various

other internet applications have to offer. Finally, participants will take

a look at existing weblogging projects in language teaching and explore ways

of cultivating and maintaining interest in a weblog community.

Weekly chats with guest speakers will be held to discuss different aspects

of blogging and offer participants a wider range of options and

perspectives. Participants will also have the opportunity to experience

different synchronous and asynchronous media.
