Jun, Pearl Wong Pei
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v3 n2 p1-10 Jul 2012
The dynamism of information technology and of recent developments in the field of technology has impacted the world of education in more ways than one. Weblogs or blogs, as they are commonly known, have now become an increasingly popular form of communication for teenagers and young adults, making it a potentially useful medium for the teaching of the English Language. This research report is aimed at demonstrating how blogs can be used in the classroom to practice language skills and also build learner confidence and independence. It includes a discussion into some of the key considerations of using blogs in the classroom and also some of the activities that may be used to encourage learners to not only work independently but collaboratively.
