Abstract

The availability of personal digital devices in schools and at home are offering new ways of engaging students in the area of language learning. In this publication, we present a new approach on writing and blogging for children aged 8 to 12 years, which is especially helpful for those who struggle with the acquisition of German orthography. On a web-based platform the pupils can write essays and blog them later on. Combined with learning analytics methods we offer individualized feedback during the process of writing and a training database with appropriate exercises to support the students’ autonomous learning.
