Facebook as a didactic tool to promote writing in an EFL classroom
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla
"The purpose of this research is to support students develop their writing ability through essays with an innovative tool such as Facebook. This app will work as a medium to work on assignments and encourage students to write more because their writing ability is one of the most unpracticed in classes. Therefore, students need such practice to accomplish those essays with well-created sentences, cohesion, and coherence. Further, writing ability needs enough training because of factors like the time assigned in class and the kinds of activities. Then, it is essential to persuade students to devote time to become proficient writers. In general, Facebook is a tool to encourage students to create essays and learn and apply different writing strategies in future assignments".
