Come and join us for the Blogstreams Salon Special Session (Tappedin ASO*) on Sunday May 1st at 21:00 GMT.
We have invited Peter Ford, one of the coordinators of the Blog Project at the European Centre of Modern Languages, to tell you how he and his team have been exploring the use of peer-to-peer collaborative online writing environments in the context of foreign language education. The main goal of the project – currently in a pilot phase (in French and English) with teachers and students from Malta, Czech Republic, and Poland – is to develop a blogging tool with specific features tailored to the needs of the foreign language-learning environment.
Peter Ford has taught and managed ICT in both UK and international schools, and is now an educational consultant at ICT4Schools, an organization he co-founded to help realize the potential of ICT in education. He is particularly interested in the opportunities provided by weblogs and other browser based techonologies.
