Self Narratives On the Web (in Words and Pictures)
S.N.O.W.blog is Language Connections‘ specially designed web-based environment. The innovative pedagogical strategies, its social technologies profile and digital media tools, its specially adjusted social psychological conditions of intragroup and intergroup online interactions and its thematic content management, have been developed by Language Connections‘ team conducted and researched by Gal Springman. They are based on 8 years of field work with high school and university students, from various ethno-cultural communities in the Middle East, Europe and China, all participating in Language Connections‘ projects.
S.N.O.W.blog‘s graphics and operating design have been developed by Ine Deahandschutter .
The essence of S.N.O.W.blog lies in building and managing gated web-based social communities of learners. It facilitates social intergroup and intragroup interpersonal interactions, and fosters empathic dialogues, across religious, socio-cultural and group identity differences.
It is a “high touch” “high tech” computer- mediated and tutor- assisted environment with common major themes and inquiry-based collaborative learning.
