The aPLaNet LLP project is helping language teachers use the Internet social networks for their professional development. The social networks offer educators extremely effective and targeted, professional development, opportunities that they should be part of.

The project is using experienced languages teachers, who are already using the social networks, to mentor teachers with little experience of the networks, on a one-to-one basis.

How you can help

We are now looking for your help in finding language teachers in your area that would like to try to understand how the social networks can help their professional development.

To help, please disseminate this message to teachers in your area. The teachers will need to register on the aPLaNet Internet community space at were they select that they wish to be mentored (a Mentee). The project will then assign a Mentor that suites their needs.
The mentoring process has already started and over 400 mentoring language educators are waiting to help your teachers.

You can also join the aPLaNet Ning community to follow the project.

Many thanks for your help.

Best wishes
