Computer Technologies in education ,especially in foreign language learning, is a wonderful  accompany for DDL.because you can see the main point with different tool on computer. DDL students are very lucky .they  don'T focus on grammar directly, as a person who started to learn English with a grammar translation method, I  always have difficulty to focus on my speech or writing  because our previous teachers tought us English mostly focusing on grammar. With combining lexical approach activities and  computer in learning ,DDL will  become tone of the best one.


Blogger in draft  is a very useful tool to make writing activity more concious and fun. Also it is helpful for who has a basic knowledge for English, because  the system complete your phrase  automotically. If you don't know english.your writing will be teriible. But otherwise it is very quick process to write . I really like it and for some writing I used it.My favorite part is with blogger in draft, it is very helpful for article. I never forget the articles which are very problamatic for Turkish learner.

reflection on blogs of my friends

I visited Burcu's and Meral's blogs. So I recognized that even though we  learned  second language with generally grammar-translition method. My both friends are willing to be effective and technologic  teachers in their class. They both think , blogs are effective for students development in language skills. Giving the  responsibility for creating blogs give them opportunity  to express themselves freely as meral mentioned..  Also I like the Burcu's idea which is about  reflection on  class. This activity makes students more  aware. I believe we all prepare ourselves as a new version teacher. I can say that we  are really eager beaver to  teach effectively.

blog teaching ideas

In my opinion blogs are very effective in teaching .Because,
-Web is a  eternal word. So both teachers and student can share a lot of things; formal or informal about your their subjects and they can share on blogs.
-We can add  tricider link to our blog so we can discuss about any subject in  any time not restricted  only in class hours.
-Student can have competence to be more creative than each other on blogs so they can share articles, jokes and experiments about their subjects.
-We can add link for flash cards on blogs so we have an opportunity  to review  our  terminology.
-We give the students to opportunity to develop their wiriting skills.


              I have just met twitter last  friday. Actually I didn't even wonder what it  looks like.  Because I heard about it only silly things. Famous people (generally  pop stars) share interesting information or  personal information to make their own more popular.But in our first class I recognized  that I can search or follow the effective people who is professional on my branch. Actually this type of social sites are very optional. You can just use it for spending time or develop yourself. If we look from this side, it will be really effective  because you can create your own network so you can just deal with  your interests. Let's look at the effectivity of twitter on  education.
           First of all, you can create  environment which is most likely Dogma. Last semester we deal with it . The main idea is creating learning environment which is not restricted in class.With twitter , we also contunue to learn after class hour. We can share  useful links with our friends in a second on twitter. we don't have to wait for next class session. Another advantage is  occuring discussion  about our class works. Fourthly the last minute changes or requirement can share quickly by teacher. The last thing I want to mention is the restricted area for writing  not like other sites or blogs you can just share 140 character so  the students are getting  more plain on writing. Summarization skill will be developed with the help of twitter. Of course, there is some disadvantages of  twitter. let's see
 First of all, students can start to use it just for fun instead of education. You have to be sure your student don't cheat on you . The second  disadvantage is we live in the developing country not the one which is developed.So all students cannot have computer or phone to axcess quickly on web,Twitter. We should be aware of students' situation. Because it could be hard to go internet cafes to axcess on web for students.
            To sum up , I believe that each person has a right and option to use something in a benefitial way or not. As a teacher , if we are good guides  to them, they can benefit from the Twitter.
