Week 1: Creating an academic blog

I managed to create my self reflective teaching blog successfully following the given instructions. I had been helped to create a blog before, but now I am really happy because I have been able to do it on my own.

I think blogs are a great language learning tool nowadays. For example, in my Cultural Studies lessons, there is much discussion all the time, so I find a class blog is an ideal space for students to reflect more deeply on themes touched upon in class.

Now I have to learn how to take the best advantage of this tool to encourage students to participate and keep them interested in using it. The ultimate goal is to enhance their learning and I believe this tool can help a great deal!
