Abstract

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present one aspect of a research project entitled "Literacy, autonomy and collaborative work: a new context for Foreign Language learning at university level" carried out at the Department of Engineering and Technological Research from the National University of La Matanza (UNLaM), Argentina. The overall objective of the project was the design and implementation of a collaborative hyper medial resource called "webzine" – a web-based magazine– so that learners at UNLaM could increase their autonomy and improve their literacy in English as a foreign language. In order to do so, the first step was to analyse a number of webzines available on the web and review related theory so as to determine what elements should be present when developing the webzine. The main concern of this paper is to describe the webzine and discuss the pedagogic aims, the individual and social dynamics and the teacher’s role in this personalized learning context.
