Autonomous ‘Personal learning Networks’ for Language Teachers (aPLaNet) Project Launch Conference
Today I attended project launch conference of PLaNet in Yeditepe University. This is a very inspiring EU funded project with the aim of providing language teachers in Europe with chances of professional development and in the first plenary keynote project members explained different aspects of the Project and the on-line resources that are created.
In aPLaNet project language teachers are assisted in their professional development by aPLaNet mentoring programme. Participating teachers can become mentees and mentors assist them in using social networks and online tools for professional development and building their own personal learning network (PLN).
Here is the link to the project’s self-access webquest for Twitter, Facebook and Ning that outlines numerous useful links. You can reach the Facebook Page of the Project by clicking on the link.
This project is a living proof of the role of on-line Community of Practice (COP) for enhancing professional development of language teachers.
