Tokyo JALT:

I Wanna Blog

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Scott Lockman

As tools for collaboration and interaction, weblogs (blogs) have attracted much attention for the potential they offer for language teachers and learners. Highly flexible, the use of blogs includes personal online publishing, reflective journaling, and theme- or interest-based community building. At this workshop, you will get a chance to discover and imagine some of the emerging possibilities. Scott Lockman, Membership Chair for the Tokyo Chapter, will introduce you to some exciting no-cost blogging tools, provide examples of some current blogging practices in the EFL/ESL community, and guide you through the process of setting up your own blog. Register early to reserve your place.
