I know it is hard to believe but It has been snowing for two days here (since the blogathon started). Mostly, I prefer enjoying the snow with a cup of coffee inside my house. Last night, the view from my window was so nice that it made me feel I should keep a kind of diary in which I can make some notes of the specific moments in my life.Since we are in the 21st century and everything is developing fast with all new tools related to technology;I thought about how nice it is to keep diary,journal and personal notes with the new tools in virtual environments.
For example; Penzu is a great tool for keeping journals online. http://penzu.com/
Most importantly, you can use it with your students.That's why my title is record your learning...
We, as humanbeing, are so enthusiastic to record our life, how about using the same energy for recording our learning?
The first idea that came to my mind was that our students can write about their classroom experiences in English lesson, about atmosphere in general, teacher-student interaction, what they feel about the subject covered in the classroom and also how proficient they feel themselves about that subject covered at school....etc.
That sounds like a learning diary which is good for academic purposes .It will be online and seems more accessible with all age groups.
At that point: I have a general question for all. What kind of other things we can do with online personal journals? Plus, How does keeping online learning diary sound? Would it be effective?
I am looking forward to hearing your ideas,
Thanks for sharing in advance,
