I did a speil in 2 ESOL team meetings today - 16-19 and EFL - and showed them some of the Australian sample Blogs I found. Both teams seemed receptive to the outline of what I hope to achieve.
A few interesting questions cam up:
- How accurate should students' English be? (does this depend on what is the focus of the task?)
- Should the teacher correct the work? If so - how? Correct all work??
- How should the teacher monitor the Blog? (trying to keep time spent to a practical level)
- What privacy settings need to be used?
