Group blog as one of the modern Internet-technologies in foreign language teaching

Annotation

The using of modern Internet-technologies in a foreign language teaching is one of the most promising areas from the standpoint of optimizing the educational process. We propose the author’s definition of the term Internet-technology, which refers to the multi-species system of interaction between a teacher and a student with using modern technical tools of the Internet, aimed at the realization of the tasks set by communication. Also group blog is defined as the most promising subtype of Internet-technologies. It was given the author’s definition as a collective blog in which students from one group publish their work for further discussion with the aim of developing thought-thinking skills. The constituent elements of the communication act, including the participants, purpose, theme, language tools and circumstances, are implemented with group blog using. The advantage of didactic properties and methodological functions of the group blog in the formation and development of the communication skills “reading”, “writing”, “speaking”, “speech” and “listening” is noted. Studied in the scientific research center type of blog is presented as a unified platform for communication and space for teamwork of users group and moderator. Based on the constant set of statuses and roles in the teacher–student dyad, the thematic focus of blog is determined by the moderator – completing of assignments, participation in discussion of published material, reflection on other users’ messages. We also examine the group blog as one of the modern Internet-technologies in foreign language teaching.
