New technologies have brought new ways to teach, learn and interact. Blogs have become, not only a virtual diary form, if they are not used for an endless number of communication objectives. Blogs are all the rage, that there is no doubt. They are in the street for a few years, everyone has one, well either for telling what happens day by day, to talk about tastes or hobbies, work, etc also, there are corporate blogs, enterprise-wide or event worth has one, whether to tell news, products, business, presentations and talks, or any aspect that can bring a direct or indirect profit. But blogs also come to training.
Now used blogs from child to university classrooms, happening, of course, by the virtual. Now, many teachers have created blogs as one way of teaching, as a system of involving the student in his learning. Many use services common to everyone blogs: WordPress, Blogger, and an endless more vendors. But that part is the most innovative use of tools created from scratch to suit the specific needs of this teacher, that subject or those students. Many organizations have developed such tools to respond perfectly to the specific characteristics of this blog in particular. It is not the same, a blog to share knowledge, that a blog that wants to be a system so that the children do their duty, a blog of doubts, drawings, or students with special needs.
The universities of half the world they have a time implemented. They have become a way to rescue the knowledge that occurs outside of the pure teaching. How many times we’ve thought we’ve learned more in a talk, in the cafeteria, in the classroom? Learning is composed of formal and correct, actual information, and a large number of factors that are not collected on any site, many are rumors but many others are part of the knowledge of mankind, are the famous no formal information. Learning, both in the University and outside it, is half way between the individual and the collective dimension. All create knowledge during the processing of the individual knowledge in the interrelation with collective knowledge. Blogs enable flexibility in design allowing the student to construct their own knowledge. But the use of Web 2.0 is not limited to universities, increasingly more colleges have soaked new technologies to make faster learning among children. Nursery and primary education teachers use blogs to engage the child in their learning, even the involvement of parents, in addition to the student participates in the society in which he lives is achieved. These blogs for kids are specially adapted so that they can use comments, learn through symbols, and even with services of voice for children with special difficulties. In schools that use blogs as a method for learning There is a family-school revolution, since it is getting the involvement of mothers and fathers that children reach their goal. In many centres, even, classrooms are enabled with computers in the afternoons so they can help their children with homework, if you have no Internet at home. Come on, new technologies are not simple tools that facilitate processes, beyond. They are a way to evolve, to create new types of learning, changing society and encourage the participation of all social sectors. Hopefully that time in full development of the blogs and do not stay in a simple fad.
