Students’ Works from (5B)
Processes of the Writing Both 5A and 5B students should first set the power points for preparation and searching information. After that, teachers will use these information to write their own sub-topics by using mind maps and paraphasing skills After that, students can know more about what they should write in their reports/dramas.

Final Stage Teachers can show the students how to use the goggle website to finish their tasks and the most important points is that not only teachers but also the students themselves should read and give comments about the works (i.e. peer evaluation) Both 5A and 5B are allowed to give comments to each other, the cross-over evaluation between two classes are greatly encouraged.

The Advantages of using the Website Easy to use with the Chinese headings especially to the students. Students find interest to write on the web. All of them precious the chances. Students can check the other works and they may also learn from each others. Easy to stick the photos and video clips on it if necessary, Finally it can create a GOOD TEAM SPIRIT and do know how to accept the others’ opinions. (help to keep patience and show caring to the others) It is therefore worthwhile promoting to the other schools as an interesting tool to develop writing.
Some opinions of the students after using the website 2.0
5A ARTHUR CHONG I like using the Google collaborative platform, because after I ’ ve made changes on that web, other people can see the changes, so that other people can post comments on what you have done. The Google collaborative platform makes a good team spirit, and can have a better communication among us. I therefore willing to recommend the other people to use the Google collaborative platform.
5A TIMOTHY LEUNG I like Google Web Sites because I think Google Web Sites is good and easy to use, because it has some Chinese explanations and its function is good too, so I will introduce this to my classmates, let them know the benefits of using the Google Web Site I also think that Google Web Sites help me work well. Obviously the fonts are good to work with, all movies and pictures can also be placed on the Goggle sites At Google Web Sites I have leant that all the team members should try their best !
