The Autonomous “Personal Learning Networks” for Language Teachers (aPLaNet) project is a European Union education project that will help language educators who are not yet using social networks, to understand:

  • What are social networks for language educators?
  • Why should they use them?
  • How can they get involved and still keep their privacy?

The project will help you join and use Internet Personal Learning Network (PLN) on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Nings etc. (SNs). About PLNs

The project has built a set of resources that will answer the three questions. through:
1. Technical and teacher guides and videos
2. Resource templates, workshops, training, diaries
3. A mentoring system, provided by existing expert users who are language educators just like yourself, that will offer one-on-one help to educators that want to build their own PLN.

You will find all the information you need on the resources page .
