These are the snapshots of students using wiki, blog and podcasting in their Learning Process and Setting up their practical activity, which is building up an aquarium.
The students are using laptop for the learning process. They are able to use internet in order to surf on open educational sites(like wiki, blog) providing learning resources freely, and also making use of podcasting. At first, the educator guides them how to address the topic and provide them with the learning tools. Then the students benefit from self-paced learning and are allowed to discuss in groups, sharing their views and any additional information. Furthermore, the teamwork does not stop in the lab. At home too, the students may work online on the wiki and blog.
