Abstract

This study focuses on blogging, as one of the possible uses of the computer in an Afrikaans class in order to improve integration between the learning areas in a school environment. It was a new experience for learners, especially the use of technology in an Afrikaans class.

The researcher wanted to determine how learners will handle frustration in a new situation, with the focus on the different components operating in a school environment: the frustration caused by the use of the technology, the subjects / learners themselves, the rules they had to adhere to, the community they lived in: teacher, other learners, parents, who had to consider the project viability.

The most important recommendation is that this type of exercise should become a preferred way of teaching and learning, due to its educational value in shaping learnerís minds and guiding teachers to see and do things differently in a technology driven society.
