« This paper represents an earnest attempt to identify specific pedagogical roles for blogs in language learning. After briefly describing various types of blogs and defining their purposes {(Herring} et al., 2005) we attempt to accommodate their position and application within language teaching {(Thorne} \& Scott Payne, 2005), relating evidence from teachers' blogs {(} and also within Second Language Acquisition {(SLA)} theories. In particular, we shall be concentrating on the process and post-process writing approaches {(Matsuda,} 2003), with particular emphasis on current cognitivist {(Atkinson,} 2003; Ferris \& Hodgcock, 1998) and expressivist {(Berlin,} 1988) theories. These approaches will be discussed in terms of their effectiveness when establishing specific blog writing tasks. Whilst some researchers have advocated for a ‘lead blog’ or template for other students to follow {(Stone,} 2004), we have been seeking an eclectic approach based on the three approaches mentioned above. We shall describe our own blended task methodology {(Abermann,} 2004; Thorne, 2003) wherein language students at a Third Level Institution were set a blog writing task initially over a complete semester (12 weeks). The blog exercise employed both an early expressivist approach and later a (socio-) cognitivist one. Our findings, with examples from students' blogs (and also from students who continued their blogs over a 6 month period), will be presented as well as our recommendations for the integration of blogs into L2 virtual writing environments. »
