Beyond the Class Blog: Creative and Practical Uses of Blogger for the ESL Classroom
Gerich, David
TESOL Journal, v4 n1 p175-181 Mar 2013
Using Blogger, a free Google-powered weblog-generating website, English as a second language (ESL) instructors can create motivating and empowering learning opportunities for students. Instructors can generate their own blogs, including not only a class blog that builds a community-learning setting online, but also a teacher's homepage to communicate with students and a content-specific blog that extends classroom lessons to online practice. In addition, instructors can guide ESL students in the blog-creating process, leading them to write their own blogs, such as an online journal of their experiences in a foreign country.
