New technologies have brought new ways of teaching, and learning. Blogs have become not only a form of online diary, if not being used for a myriad of communications objectives. Blogs are in fashion, there’s no doubt. They’re on the street for a few years, everyone has one, and whether to tell what happens every day, to talk about likes and hobbies, work, s etc Also, there are corporate blogs, all company or event that boasts has one, whether to have new products, company presentations, lectures, or anything that may bring a direct or indirect benefit. But blogs also come to training. Now blogs are used from the classrooms of children to the university, via, of course, by the virtual.
Now, many teachers have created blogs as a way of teaching, as a system to involve students in their learning. Many blogs use services common to everyone: WordPress Blogger, and an endless supplier. But more innovative is the use of tools that you created from scratch to suit the specific needs of the teacher, the subject or of those students. Many organizations have developed such tools to respond perfectly to the specific characteristics of that particular blog. It is not the same, a blog to share knowledge, a blog that purports to be a system so that children do their homework, blog questions, drawings, or special needs students. In half the world’s universities take a while implanted. They have become a way of recovering the knowledge that gives out pure teaching. How many times have we thought that we have learned more in a talk at the coffee shop in the classroom? Learning is composed of formal and correct information, proper, and a large number of factors that are not listed anywhere, there are many rumors but so many are part of the knowledge of the human being are the famous non-formal information. Learning, both the University and beyond, is halfway between the individual dimension and the collective dimension. All we know during the processing of individual knowledge in the interaction with collective knowledge.
Blogs allow flexibility in the design allowing the student to construct their own knowledge. But the use of Web 2.0 is not limited to universities, schools increasingly have been steeped in the new technologies to speed the learning among children. Teachers of kindergarten and primary use blogs to engage the child in their learning, even get the involvement of parents, in addition to the student participant in the society in which they live. These blogs are specially adapted for children so that they can use the comments, learn through symbols, and even voice services for children with special needs. In schools using blogs as a method learning is taking place family-school revolution, since getting the involvement of parents for children to reach their goal. In many centers, even classrooms with computers are enabled in the evenings so they can help their children with homework if they do not have Internet at home. Come on, new technologies are just tools that facilitate processes, beyond. They are a way to evolve, creating new types of learning, change society and encourage the participation of all social sectors. We hope that from time to complete development of blogs and not remain a mere fad. – BA in Journalism – Master in International Relations – Graduate protocol and ceremonial – Currently, web content editor MASTERD – I love traveling, history, internet and, of course, journalism
