Take charge of your own professional development. By using the Internet, you can decide when, where and how to keep up-to-date with all the latest developments in teaching ESOL or community languages. This workshop will show you how to use Twitter, Facebook, and other online forums to learn from, and share ideas with a huge network of colleagues around the world. Through our personal stories of how we learn and share online, and how we came to collaborate on this project through 'meeting' online, we will demonstrate how building your own personal learning network (PLN) can provide extensive professional support and development. We will introduce you to some dynamic online communities where teachers in New Zealand, Australia and around the world share and collaborate. You will leave the workshop with the beginnings of your own personal learning network (PLN) and the means to develop it further.
