There are two ways that you can get involved with the aPlaNet project:

  • As a mentor (helping teachers with little or no experience on using the social networks)
  • As a mentee ( a new teacher to social networks) that wants to find out about the benefits

The aPlaNet project has produced a wide variety if guides, videos and webquests to help you with both the above. There are two videos about Social networks and Personal Learning Networks (with translated captions). The resources below are seperated in to 4 areas but we strongly advise users to join the aPLaNet community first . You will also find templates for online and offline workshops .

You can also see the teacher guides and descriptions of a wide-range of ICT tools .

We ask all participants to complete the pre and post questionnaires as these enable the project to get invaluable feedback on the quality and effectiveness of the resources we have produced.
