At first glance, blog is so funny and I think it is difficult to do. But creating a personal blog is fun. When I see my own blog, I feel a sense of ownership and achievement as long as my blog remains functional.
The integration of different web 2.0 tools into the blog allows for educational purposes. The whole blog can centre around a main theme. Here are some tools that I like most.
This is our very good experience. We can learn so much about how to combine different media including texts, photos, movies, music into one piece and integrate all these into the internet.
We can respond through the blog so that we can learn how other people think. We can communicate by effective methods. In the future, it will be a very powerful method to improve our teaching skills.
Here is the table for Olympic Games edited by Zoho writer:
The Olympic Games is an international multi-sport event subdivided into summer and wintersporting events. The summer and winter games are each held every four years (an Olympiad). Until 1992, they were both held in the same year. Since then, they have been separated two years apart.
The original Olympic Games (Greek: Ολυμπιακοί Αγώνες; Olympiakoi Agones) were first recorded in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece, and were celebrated until AD 393. Interest in reviving the Olympic Games proper was first shown by the Greek poet and newspaper editor Panagiotis Soutsos in his poem "Dialogue of the Dead" in 1833.Evangelos Zappas sponsored the first modern international Olympic Games in 1859. He paid for the refurbishment of the Panathinaiko Stadium for Games held there in 1870 and 1875. This was noted in newspapers and publications around the world including the London Review, which stated that "the Olympian Games, discontinued for centuries, have recently been revived! Here is strange news indeed ... the classical games of antiquity were revived near Athens".
The International Olympic Committee was founded in 1894 on the initiative of a French nobleman, Pierre Frédy, Baron de Coubertin. The first of the IOC's Olympic Games were the 1896 Summer Olympics, held in Athens, Greece. Participation in the Olympic Games has increased to include athletes from nearly all nations worldwide. With the improvement of satellite communications and global telecasts of the events, the Olympics are consistently gaining supporters. The most recent Summer Olympics were the 2004 Games in Athens and the most recent Winter Olympics were the 2006 Games in Turin. The upcoming games in Beijing are planned to comprise 302 events in 28 sports. As of 2006, the Winter Olympics were competed in 84 events in 7 sports.
