A new start (0906)

Hi, students,

Great to meet you again in my class.

This semester, besides the “Language Power Workbook,” we’ll explore more about online project-based learning in different learning platforms such as IEARN or ENO. Also, some ideas of Web 2.0 will be introduced to you. You are expected to learn different Web 2.0 tools like Blog, Podcast, social bookmarking, and so on. You are required to design and plan your own project by integrating one or two of the tools or platforms into your own project.

Speaking of projects, I prepare a list of things that we would do during this semester:

1. Online project-based learning: IEARN and ENO.
2. Learning tools: Uwill and Web 2.0 (Blogs, Podcasts, Vodcasts, Flickr, del.icio.us, wikispaces, etc)
3. Newspaper projects
4. The Flatmates (an online Radio program)
5. Grammar and Composition

For those who haven’t got a blog of your own, please find a learning partner in the class and start to build your own blog in wordpress. Your blog will serve as an online portfolio in which you record your learning process.

I hope you enjoy all the activities in the following months.
