Webpublishing in Open Participatory Environments





Webpublishing in Open Participatory Environments



TESOL Teacher Education and Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) ISs






Blogs, podcasts and social networking tools are a convenient and highly accessible medium for multimedia web publishing and networking. They allow learners to create their own content and build their identity online through interactive spaces through which they can engage in reflection, open and participatory multi-mode self-expression with peers and experts beyond classroom walls.


Target Audience and Objectives


This is an advanced level workshop for teachers who have already experimented with blogs and podcasts either for their own use or with classes and who would like to extend their technical and pedagogical knowledge of these social tools, RSS and tagging to help learners interact with the web at large and create networks according to their own interests.
