Author Karlsson, Anna
Date 2015
English abstract
The purpose of this research synthesis is to investigate how using blogs and Facebook in foreign language teaching can improve pupils´ writing skills in the target language. According to the theoretic framework around which the results of this research synthesis are organized, linguistic, pragmatic, intercultural and strategic competence are part of writing skills. The results show that out of the 8 studies included in the research synthesis five showed an improvement in linguistic competence, three out of those five showed an improvement in pragmatic competence as well, and another three studies also showed an improvement in pragmatic competence. None of the studies showed an improvement in intercultural or strategic competence.
