Tool #6: Using Web Tools to Promote Discussion in and out of the Classroom

Choose at least two of the tools from the above list. Create an account for each (if required). Use each of the tools you choose to create a sample of how you would use it in your classroom. Embed the sample (preferred) or link to the URL. Share your thoughts on how you see the tools being integrated into your classroom. How do you see them encouraging participation?

I have used digital media to promote discussion - blog, e-mail groups, the site for students of German. Skype would be very helpful in connecting my German student with teenagers in Germany. I have succeeded in creating and downloading a Skype account and ready to try it out.

I prefer the Wordpress to Blogger, because it is easier to use, easier for my students to write posts and comments, and more pleasing to the eye.

I have created an Edmoto account. For the moment, I'll just include the following link:

I created a short quiz using Edmoto, but some aspects are rather opaque, especially how to create the group that will take the quiz.
