Duración: 50 minutos|
Aula: Salón de Actos
This talk will look at the way various online writing tools can be used to enhance interaction, collaboration and learner autonomy. We will begin by looking at the advantages of turning to online writing as a means of making writing tasks more authentic, interactive and motivating for students by providing them with a real audience and a real purpose for writing. We will briefly cover the impact advances such as the development of the read/write web, social constructivism and computer supported collaborative learning have had on the role of students and teachers. We will then look specifically at blogs, wikis and discussion boards and analyze the types of interaction that occur in each of these environments. We will give some practical examples of activities.
