Welcome to the aPLaNet (Autonomous 'Personal Learning Networks' for Language Teachers)
Self-Access Piloting Webquest
In the first year, the aPLaNet team produced guides and resources for language teachers to help them become autonomous users of social networks. The language teachers who are willing to build their Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are invited to use these resources and help us test the effectiveness of them. The piloting will start on 16 January 2011 and finish on 9 March 2012 and the analysis of the piloting results will help us improve our system and resources.
Update: The piloting has been extended until 30.05.2012.
The aPLaNet piloting consists of two parts: Mentored piloting and self-access piloting.
Mentored piloting is for teachers who prefer to pilot the aPLaNet resources with guidance of a mentor.
Self-access piloting is for teachers who prefer to pilot the aPLaNet resources on their own.
This webquest is designed for self-access piloting teachers in order to guide them during their experience of using ICT tools and Social Networks and building their PLNs. If you are interested in mentored piloting, please go to http://aplanet-project.org/group/mentees-looking-for-mentors and become a member of this group. You will soon be contacted by our team.
The Self-Access piloting teachers will be awarded an aPLaNet certificate upon the completion of the Webquest, after they submit the post-piloting questionnaire.
Now, if you have decided to become an aPLaNet Self-Access Piloting Teacher, please go to the Introduction page to find out more about this Webquest.
Enjoy the experience!
The aPLaNet Team
