Technology as a mean for collaborating writing
Salazar Castaño, Rodrigo | 2016-07-28
One of the main problems seen at the University of Quindío in some students in the process of a second language acquisition is the master of good academic writings of students, since the learning process of this skill demands a lot of practice and specially, a lot of feedback. The interesting thing about it is that most of the time, these writing problems are not seen only in the firsts semester students, but also in students who in semesters ahead. This thought is raised in order to get of the potential that technological means such as Internet and the cloud can give us to provide students a helpful online application in which teachers and students will be involve in a full environment that will help them to go deeper in this skill and improve it. It is hoped that through this mean, they can receive so much input (feedback) as be possible for identifying their mistakes and improve them. It is known as well that a lot student can feel no motivated when things do not go well. This project also has the task for students raise their motivation with mutual help. Additionally, both students and teachers shall wake up, we are in the technological age, we cannot permit us that neither students nor professors still feel uncomfortable or afraid when technology is decided to be applied to education.
