We were thrilled to have...

  • Exciting plenary presentations by some of the leading figures in European language learning
  • Stimulating concurrent keynotes by European projects
  • Academic papers
  • A wide-variety of interesting and stimulating workshops on the use of social networks and Web2.0 tools as tools of teacher professional development.

Plus sessions, workshops and a plenary about the aPLaNet project itself and how you can use its resources, presented by the aPLaNet partnership see more... About the aPLaNet Project

  • Do you use social networks like Facebook, Twitter & Nings?

  • Do you use them for personal reasons, to keep in touch with friends and family or for professional reasons?

  • Do you think social networks such as these can contribute to your own professional development?

These are some of the questions we will be asking hundreds of foreign language educators - and we hope you will be one of them - to find out their attitudes to using Social Networking sites to create and build their PLN, in other words, their Personal Learning Network

During the two years of the
aPLaNet project, we collaborating with our partner institutions to create support and resources which helped foreign
language teachers in Europe to
understand and use social network in order to:

  • Build and expand their PLN by connecting with educators on Facebook, Twitter & Nings
  • Continue with their professional development in an autonomous way
  • Acquire the skills and digital literacies required in order to use these mediums successfully and productively


If you are unfamiliar with Nings, we suggest you start from this one as it is used as our main communication tool
