How would I use blogs, wikis and delicious with my EFL students?

    The using of websites such as blog, wiki and Delicious in teaching can be a powerful and effective technology tool for students and teachers alike.

    I would use the blog mainly to improve my students’ writing. For example, I will let them post freely whatever they want and comment on each other posts, students should post at least tow times monthly. Then I’ll give them feedback.  

    To use wiki with my students, I would divide the class into groups; each group will have their wiki. I’ll post some topics related to our course, each group will select a topic and collect information about it, post it in their group wiki and discus it with their classmates.  

    Delicious is a bookmarking tool that every student would need. I would ask my students to make their own Delicious and for each lesson they have to bookmark an article or a website that they find it useful and beneficial to our lesson, and share it with their classmates. 

the using of these tools would improve the teaching quality and the students' achievement as well.
