This is my humble learning journal in which I'll try to supply my eagerness of learning new stuff -and share it- in order to improve my teaching practice.

Vygotsky, ZPD, And Blogging
Vygotsky's theory of learning and the concept of ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) really impressed me when I came across it for the first time. From then on, I have always tried to have this incredible concept in mind together with student autonomy -one of my dreams, too :) I do believe in cooperative learning, in the magic power of interaction and a teacher as just a mediator. I will take pains, then, to try to create this kind of enchanment in my student blog -which I'll start tomorrow- and see if I can make my dream come true. This is a great opportunity to have another look at Vygotsky's work, now with another perspective, and find out more about e-learning pedagogy.
