Abstract

This qualitative study investigated pre-service English language teachers’ perceptions of using blogs and wikis to promote their learning. Also, it sought to identify whether pre-service teachers prefer one tool over another. Semi-structured interviews with 15 participants in addition to analyzing postings on the course blog were the used methods for collecting data. The findings showed that the participants perceived the blogs and wikis as powerful tools to enhance their learning. However, 80% of participants indicated that they prefer using blogs more than wikis to learn. Implications for effective use of web 2.0 applications were provided.
