Abstract

Originally, blogs served as personal journaling tools. Recently blogs are more often applied to form online communities and thus expanded to more extensive uses in education. Little has been learned about the learners' perceptions of using blog to facilitate online discussion, nor of strategies for facilitating collaboration on blogs. This study investigates the effects of blogging on pre-service teachers' awareness of diversity in a literacy/reading context, and shares our experiences of facilitating the collaborative contributions of blogs
