  • I will show examples of different Web 2.0 tools that I have used to broaden communication and interaction in the blended language classroom, whether with young learners or teacher trainees, and "you" will decide on their usefulness and effectiveness.
  • Was one way between consumers and customers ..retrieving data. was about reading was about (tools ) was about home pages was about owning was about dialup was about output materials
  • WWW & Internet
  • is two way is about (reading &) writing is about users( teachers) is about blogs, wikis,tweeter is about sharing is about broadband is about input material
  • What is a wiki?
  • trying to put into practice what you learn when you return to the classroom. Resources availability + continual hands-on and contact seem to be invaluable. Interaction in such matters is often restricted to acquaintances and friends. Others related to the concept itself and how the participants viewed it inability to hold group meetings regularly to share ideas and difficulties of personal/individual study time . most of those who are called upon to attend these activities may not get the maximum benefit expected. More to this, they have no power of decision to impalement what they get in those activities.
