Abstract


This paper reports the purpose of integrating Web 2.0 tool, Glogster in language learning tasks. Web 2.0 tools and digital blooms taxonomy have become prevalent in the English classroom with the ubiquitous use of smartphone, tabs and laptops in the language classroom. Certain details in this paper were presented in the Connecting Online (CO12) session in the year 2012. This paper also describes activities which would help in fostering creativity and autonomy in the teaching-learning process. Glogster is a web 2.0 tool which provides a platform for teachers and learners in creating and using glogs for language learning and other subjects. This tool provides a supportive platform for monitoring project based language learning activities. Having studied the use of the glog for language learning with the first batch of 54 students in 2009, in the following semesters 302 students were introduced to the glogging task. In total, 356 B.Tech students at VIT were introduced to web 2.0 tools for language learning tasks. They were introduced to the use of three Glogster tasks for synthesizing their real life and virtual language learning experiences in different semesters.
