      Hi Rita!
      I would love to collaboraet with you but your students are a bit
      younger than mine (18-35) and have only one more month of class, so I
      guess it wouldn't work out. :-(

        Dear Rita,

        I'm interested. I'm from Slovenia and I teach part-time students of informatics. They are aged 30-50 and their English ranges from lower intermediate to upper intermediate. Our course ends in the beginning of May and today we have opened our first group blog . We have classes in computer room from 16.30-18.00 GMT every Monday and Thursday. Do you think we can work something out?

        Warmly,

        Sasha

          Hi Sasha and Ronaldo, I also have students ranging the same age. What is the blog? I still have not created mine with them, but surely would not be a problem.

              Hi, Jane, Nina, Sasha, Ronaldo and Alicia,

              Thanks a lot for your responses, we could all give our students the
              chance to get together in a common, worldwide project which we could
              build up around common topics on, say, "Cultural Differences",
              or "Traditional Customs in your Country: Celebrations and Festivals",
              for example, which would enrich their knowledge and at the same time,
              allow them to communicate meaningfully in engaging situations.

              Vance has opened up a moodle at
              http://www.opensource.idv.tw/moodle/course/view.php?id=46
              and I believe it could be a good starting point for a joint project
              with students who can already communicate safely in English. At the
              same time, we, teachers, could profit from the experience by learning
              and experimenting with RSS, and help each other get to know about
              Aggregation and Syndication, "a real important technology that
              information specialists and educators would be well advised to
              harness sooner rather than later..."

              First of all we need to show our students the importance of "going
              online", reaching an audience, using English in authentic situations
              with other students of the language, etc. And helping them start
              their own blogs. We will all then be ready to start sharing each
              other's blog by opening an account in Bloglines and start subscribing
              to those blogs our students find most interesting.

              My class blog is at http://caeb2007.podomatic.com/, but you can
              choose Podomatic or any other blog host you like (BTW,if you want to
              visit mine and leave a comment, my students and I will appreciate
              it!!!)

              Vance suggests several good sources for info on RSS, the one I find
              very easy to follow is http://www.weblogg-ed.com/wp-
              content/uploads/2006/05/RSSFAQ4.pdf

              We could also get together at the wiki for queries or suggestions, at
              http://writingmatrix.wikispaces.com/, where you'll find more details
              on the project.
              I'd love to hear your comments,

                Hi, Rita! I'm Doris from Venezuela. My students are finishing their
                trimester in two weeks. Their final project is to showcase their work
                during the semester in a blog. I'd be great if students from the world
                could drop by and leave a message. We are also starting a new trimester
                in three weeks. I'm planning to have my students open their blogs from
                the begining so we could participate in this project with you guys! Hope
                we can learn, share and have lots of F.U.N together.

                Right now I have 13 groups... they are basic and low intermediate
                students from Universidad Dr. Rafael Belloso Chacin
                <http://www.urbe.edu/> in Maracaibo. I think next trimester I'll have
                the same number of groups.

                Here you can visit our class blog "Doris3m Efl Center
                <http://www.doris3meflcenter.blogspot.com/> "

                Looking forward to working together! A warm hug and keep on shining!

                  Maybe we can collaborate in the fall semester. I am not sure yet
                  which class I will be teaching, but it may be the same (fairly)
                  advanced semi-intensive class (students already enrolled in some
                  credit classes at UMD). I have not had much luck getting them to buy
                  into the blog thing this semester, but maybe if there were a
                  colaborative element the next group might be better. Let's talk!

                  for Winter 2007, one in Longueuil and the other at ENA, the
                  aeronautical campus); I put their first names and the TV show they chose:
