SHIPWRECKED’S BINNACLE: BLOG AS A TUTORIAL TOOL

There is currently a strong consensus to understand the contemporary world as the knowledge and the information society, and in admitting the importance of the global network of Internet in his conformation (characterization). In spite of it, Communication and Information Technologies (CIT) still have -in Spain- a reduced presence and are frequently questioned in the teaching internships: there is a lack of objective criteria for his design, implementation, use or evaluation. In this respect, too often, his use is done in a strong-willed way, handcrafted, reductive and little systematic. On the other hand, it results pertinent to consider that this knowledge society entails an inflation problem of information; that is, it is generated a lot of “trash-information” that makes the user found flooded with contents that precise to be chosen and selected. In this need of establishing based criteria (BASED, not to confuse with basic) in the selection of the information, and trying to develop a critical and constructive spirit in the formation of the cybernaut, is that our proposal is based. Splitting from these antecedents we have implemented a pedagogical blog proposal that we have called “The Shipwrecked’s Binnacle”. We pretend to give an electronic tutorial tool to favor the students' apprenticeship of Social Sciences, which will be responsible for select and debate information around certain investigation topics. This teaching methodology, which we could call as a “filtering guidance”, expects to understand tutorial work as a justified selection of textual and audiovisual materials and as a collaboration, copartnership and coauthorship between students and teachers in the debates and forums on specific subject matters.
