The aPLaNet Project http://aplanet-project.org/
Do you use social networks like Facebook, Twitter & Nings?
Do you use them for personal reasons, to keep in touch with friends and family or for professional reasons?
Do you think social networks such as these can contribute to your own professional development?
These are some of the questions we will be asking hundreds of foreign language educators - and we hope you will be one of them - to find out their attitudes to using Social Networking sites to create and build their PLN, in other words, their Personal Learning Network
During the two years of the aPLaNet project, we will be collaborating with our partner institutions to create support and resources which will help foreign
language teachers in Europe to understand and use social network in order to:
Build and expand their PLN by connecting with educators on Facebook, Twitter & Nings
Continue with their professional development in an autonomous way
Acquire the skills and digital literacies required in order to use these mediums successfully and productively
