European funded language project aPLaNet Autonomous „Personal Learning Networks“ for Language Teachers is a European Union funded project to help language educators who are not yet using social networks to understand:

  •        What are social networks for language educators?
  •        Why they should use them?
  •        How they can get involved?

The project will help them join and use Internet Personal Learning Network (PLN) on social networks (SNs)

The three questions will be answered by showing language educators:

  1. What and how to use identified SNs (technical & teacher guides, videos)
  2. What resources and support is available within a PLN (resource templates workshops, guides, diaries)
  3. How they can build their own PLN through a mentoring system, provided by existing expert users who are language educators just like themselves (Websites, mentoring system, workshops, guides).
