Via Josie among others comes an new TESOL article, Jason Ward’s Blog Assisted Language Learning (BALL): Push button publishing for the pupils (.pdf) now that could have been BALL for Students or BALL Systems, no?

It’s actually a very good article which gets stuck in straight away with possible benefits of blogging for composition including genuine audience, process driven composition and peer-reviewed writing (for me these things stick out for weblogs more than some of the others – given the other technologies available).

There’s also a small and encouraging study of one classes experience which, like the rest of the article is clearly presented. I like this, it’s very accessible… a shame Jason didn’t blog it :o)
