Abstract

This study investigated the differences in levels of achievement when learning the preterite and imperfect aspects in Spanish, at the recognition and production levels, between students who used instruction with video/photo blogs and wikis, compared to those who used instruction with traditional text-based technologies. Results revealed that there were no significant differences at the production level between the students who used video/photo blog and wiki technologies vs. those who used traditional technologies. However, significant differences were found at the recognition level for the group that used video/photo blogs and wikis when compared with those who used traditional technologies. General mean results revealed that the groups using video/photo blogs and wikis outperformed those who used traditional technologies.
