Group Description

Collaborative Blogging in ESL /EFL

This Y-Group was part of the 2006 EVO (Electronic Village Online) and is no longer active although members are welcome to continue using the Links and Files. If you are interested in joining one of the 2007 EVOs, please go to this link: http://evo07sessions.pbwiki.com/

Weblogs (or blogs) have evolved from easily updated private
online journals into a multimodal collaborative tool for information exchange
and reflection.

This online session will encourage participants to explore
possible uses, and to create their own blogs as a project of collaboration and
peer exchange of ideas and knowledge.

We will examine and compare several current
blogging tools and how they could be put to use with ESL/EFL learners. We will
also consider how to use multimedia content, such as audio recorded voice messages,
podcasts, photos and videos.

Participants will work together in a group blog,
and become familiar with group features, such as multiple authors, clustering
Friend of a friend (FOAF), and interest sharing by keyword tagging, blog rolls,
RSS and aggregation software. This way we hope to encourage the development
of community oriented practices.
