The writing and the reading skills can be enhanced
with the use of blogs and websites.Both of them allow interactivity among students,with the teacher and a real audience.Nowadays, blogs can also display photos and some people are using them with audio and even video.
Where to start
are lots of sites where you can set up a blog for free, but perhaps the best known and one of the most reliable and simple
blogging tools to use with students is Blogger . It takes only fifteen minutes from setting up an account to publishing the first post using this
The teacher sets up the tutor blog or
a class blog. With a Class blog, students will need to be invited to participate by e-mail. Learner blog accounts can either
be set up beforehand by the teacher, or done at the same time with a whole class in a computer room. The former gives the
teacher more control of student accounts, but some advantages of the latter is that learners are given more choice (of username,
design of the blog, etc) and a greater sense of 'ownership' of their new virtual writing space.
A good website host is Tripod which is really user-friendly and allows you to publish your students´production with pictures, videos and links.
You can also try Google Pages.It´s very user-friendly.See one example.
