Are you using blogs currently either as a teacher or learner? If so how?

Well, now just as a learner. I think it is a little bit difficult for me but it is really amazing how I can learn a lot of things from different teachers.

How do you connect with other teachers? Do you prefer face-to-face meetings (i.e., workshops, conventions, etc.) or online communities (i.e., online workshops, Nings, blogs, wikis, etc.)?

I am not using blogs currently as a teacher, because I think I need to practice more in order to get all habilities so I can be able to guide my students through all the process. --Itzel Portal 15:16, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Is it necessary to know everything about how blogs work in order to use them in class? Can you think of technologies you currently use and remember how much knowledge/skill was required before using it the first time in front the class? And how much (if at all) you learned about the technology "on the job"?

I have been using blogs for a year now and I find it very useful since students get used to working on the internet. The students need to be familiarized with the use of the internet for educational purposes as well as entertainment. I have used blogs so students can practice vocabulary items in context, watch videos of themselves to reflect and give feedback to the class, games in order to practice grammar and I have given them assignemtns to practice reading comprehension.--Monica R 16:02, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Great Monica! Can you include an RSS feed or link to your blog in one of our WE pages?

Why not add a link to your blog to this page (to week three)?

Hi: No, I have not been using blogs because I need more practice on this topic. First I would like to learn more about them and learn how to use them.

Hello Yanahalti,

Talking about BLOGS, I found some really good ones that sometimes I use when I have doubts or need activities for my classes.

TEACHERS & STUDENTS:

I like these links because they provide useful information for both, teachers and students.

I think that is very important to use blogs in class because we can provide commentary or news of a topic and it can be like an online diaries for answering doubts or sharing information.

Thanks for sharing Nellie. Can you share a classroom experience where you have used blogs? What are some challenges that you face when using blogs in the language learning classroom?
