  1. 2. What is a Blog? <ul><li>A blog is an on line journal that a person can continuously update with their own words, ideas and materials (photos, audios videos..) in a very easy way.(Easy software required). </li></ul><ul><li>Weblog entries are directly typed into the browser and inmediately published. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s very interactive: readers can respond to any given entry. </li></ul>
  2. 3. Which are its didactic aplications? <ul><li>The use of a blog is very useful in class, beacause it provides interaction between all students and the teacher. </li></ul><ul><li>It is recommended that a teacher has its own blog: it gives daily reading practice to the learners, and also, it promotes exploration of different websites. A blog is an important tool for all the teachers, because greatly facilitates the work. Is a way to have in the same place different kinds of resources, including different websites. You can also include different experiences related to your work, guides for teachers, in a very easy way. </li></ul><ul><li>The use of a blog encourages online verbal exchange by adding different comments, and it serves as a resource of links for self study. If you are a teacher you can also use Blogs as an own journal: you can show to your students different things about you, different places you have stayed . Is a good way to become more familiar to them. </li></ul><ul><li>It could be good that students have their own blog too: it will be very useful for writing practice and they can exchange their own ideas an comments. A blog is something that belongs to your personality. </li></ul><ul><li>For students is an important resource because it encourages the use of Internet, they will be more motivated constructing their own experiences in an indirect way of learning. </li></ul><ul><li>I also recommend that the whole class has its own blog as a result of collaborative effort of all the students, including you in an free and motivating way of working together. </li></ul>
  3. 4. WHAT IS A WEBQUEST? <ul><li>It is an inquiry- oriented activity in which some or all the information that learners interact with comes from different resources on the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>It has 5 components: </li></ul><ul><li>Introduction: </li></ul><ul><li>Task: the task can be a product , a power point, a written report or an oral presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Process: The process Block may include strategies for dividing the task into subtasks and the description of roles played by each learner </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation/ Rubric: a rubric is an authentic assesment tool which is particularly useful in assesing criteria which are complex and subjective. It lists the criteria being evaluated in a table-format. So, students can figure out how they are going to learn. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Didactic aplications of a webquest <ul><li>The use of a webquest is one of the most important resources to be applied in all the classes. Is a good way to develop a topic with a clear structure about how you are going to introduce it to your students, in a particular way. </li></ul><ul><li>The introduction of your topic is very important because students must connect with it, so it will be good that you have in mind many things for engage them: use of a video, taken by you tube or an other web site, you may include songs, pictures, podcasts.. </li></ul><ul><li>The task must be clear and you have to expose it to your students in a comprehensible way. All the steps that they have to follow must be correctly showed in the webquest. </li></ul><ul><li>The rubric is an important part of your webquest: your evaluation can’t be reduced to an end product, you have to take into account all the process, the effort that students have shown during the activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally you can use your webquest as a web page reference to other teachers. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Treasure Hunts <ul><li>Students work cooperatively in groups using the Internet to search for answers to a variety of questions set out by the treasure Hunt Maker. There is a list of websites and pages in it, where they can find the answers. At the end there is a big question, which requires knowledge about the topic. It has different parts: </li></ul><ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Questions </li></ul><ul><li>Main Questions </li></ul><ul><li>Links </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation. </li></ul>
