Now, every Wednesday at 19:00pm GMT or 21.00pm GMT, ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected. To join in you just have to follow the hashtag #ELTChat. You'll see the conversation and anything you tag with #ELTChat will be part of it If you already use a Twitter app like Hootsuite or Tweetdeck, you can follow #ELTChat in there.

Follow it here A how to guide for Twitter apps Every Saturday, one of the moderators will put up a blog post on the #ELTchat Blog asking teachers who follow #ELTchat to propose some topics for the next chats. We then share it online and people can go to the post and suggest topics in the comments. What is a PLN, anyway? A good friend (and a great teacher) e-mailed me after my last post.

What is a PLN, anyway?

“Great links,” she said. “But what’s a PLN?” A good reminder about why I try to avoid acronyms and jargon in my writing. PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. The structure of my PLN has changed since I first started teaching.

The ELP is managed and organised by learners themselves and can be used in the following ways: To encourage learners to reflect on and make decisions about their own learningTo facilitate evidence gathering and to inform profilesTo share information at times of transition and/or reportingTo support the 1+2 Approach by allowing learners to transfer their skills across additional languagesTo celebrate wider achievement and learning experiences that take place in and out of the classroomThe Scottish ELP reflects the standards and expectations of CfE, whilst simultaneously benchmarking learning against the Common European Framework. In this way, pupils can see that their language learning corresponds to that of their counterparts of the same age across Europe.

Helen C. Barrett (a work in process, begun in 2004, last updated June 30, 2013 - 41 tools to date) Introduction to this StudyI am an advocate of using common tools to build electronic portfolios. At certain points in the process, most electronic portfolio artifacts are created with common desktop tools. The challenge has been the authoring/organizing software. I should note that there are some issues with publishing portfolios online. I am exploring different online portfolio systems, free web server space or other strategies for developing online electronic portfolios.
