Reading and Writing about Literature on the Internet. Two Innovative Experiences with Blogs in Higher Education
Neira-Piñeiro, María del Rosario
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v52 n5 p546-557 2015
This paper describes two innovative experiences with ICT in teacher training by means of the development of two blogs about children's and young adults' literature. The study of both activities shows the usefulness of blogs in higher education and their contribution to the linguistic and literary training of future teachers. The results show that the creation of a literature blog enhances communicative skills in a digital environment, enlarges the students' literary competence, improves the future teachers' didactic training, increases the participants' motivation and encourages independent learning and shared knowledge building by means of peer interaction.
