My wiki project

Posted by Mariel Amez on February 7, 2009

I mentioned earlier that I had started designing a wiki for FCE students to be used this year, as detailed in a post to Collaborative Writing.

One of the pages, which I called “Around the World”, includes 3 videos from

They are videos for the cities of Lagos, Nagasaki and Merida. My idea is that sts should first comment on the videos. The actual task is

Watch these videos made by students about their hometowns.
  •  Which of these cities would you like to visit? Why?  
  • Does any of these cities share features with Rosario?
 Tell us in the comments (try to use as much specific vocabulary as possible).

Then, they would write a script for our hometown collaboratively on a new wiki page. Depending on skill, time and tools available, this could develop into a video, or just be limited to a writing exercise.

Wikis and EFL

Posted by Mariel Amez on February 5, 2009

I have made a posting in the Collaborative Writing blog including my views on this topic.

I have created a private wiki for my FCE class starting in March. I would appreciate your feedback, so if you can spare a minute, request access with reference to EVO09. Thanks in advance.
