      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

          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,

          Rita

            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!

              Jane,
              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!

              end. My students are college age (18 and up). In my low-intermediate
              group the blogging project has revolved around a TV journal where the
              students choose a TV show and write summaries, reactions, etc to the
              show. This project has worked very well--you will find links to the
              individual students' blogs in the right sidebar (there are two groups
              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:

              the blog to share some of their reflections. I always include a link
