Promoting Interaction through Blogging in Language Classrooms
Gunduz, Muge
International Journal of Research in Education and Science, v2 n2 p438-443 Sum 2016
This study aims to explore the university students' perception on integration of blogging in EFL classes. In this study, the participants were first year university students (n=103) who created their group blogs in order to share their blog entries during their oral communication classes. Students interacted with their peers via blogs simply by reading and commenting on each other's blog posts. The data was collected from the blog entries and a questionnaire administered at the end of the project in order to understand the perceptions of students on effectiveness of using blogs in developing their language use. It is hoped that the findings of this study provides some insights into a number of pedagogical and theoretical issues.
