Fireworks in Virtual Worlds: An ESP Blended Experience
ESP classes have traditionally focus on providing students tools to read and understand different kind of texts related to their field of study. Also, ESP course design has been based on the use of paper and pencil. Now, thanks to computers, mobile phones and internet, a whole set of new tools and approaches have emerged that can be integrated into the face to face class turning it into a blended experience that incorporate digital literacies and skills needed for  future jobs.
In this webinar, we look at the story of an ESP Class for Graphic Design Students that integrate technology based on the use of blogs, social networks, and virtual worlds. Assesment is done throught a project that allows students to read texts with a pourpose and learn by creating artifacts and experiencing new worlds.
