Event Description

Dear friends,

We are delighted to inform you that from November 5-8, 2009, we will be running the Social Networking 2009 Conference. This open-knowledge event will be completely online and free and it is aimed at elluminating ELT practitioners to grow in the use of social networks as learning development tools.

This event is being jointly organized by AVEALMEC and ARCALL, two Latin-American associations, one based in Venezuela and the other in Argentina, interested in promoting the use of ICT in the language classroom.

For this event, we invited conference speakers from different parts of the world:

George Siemens -Canada

Etienne Wenger -US

Vance Stevens -UAE

Nik Peachey -UK

Charalambos Vrasidas and Maria Solomou -Cyprus

Nicky Hockly -Spain

Erica Cruvinel and Ronaldo Lima –Brazil

Rita Zeinstejer and Paula Ledesma -Argentina

Nellie Müller Deustch –Israel

Carla Arena –Brazil

Graham Stanley –Spain

Jennifer Vershoor, Evelyn Izquierdo and Erica Cruvinel –Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil

During four days, our guest speakers will be sharing their experiences and expertise with participants and will help us grasp a better picture of how social networks can be used in the language teaching and learning field. We will be discussing about the concepts and theories around social networks, communities of practice and the Web 2.0, as well as about the use, advantages and drawbacks of social networking tools.

Join us and participate in this amazing learning experience!

Spread the word! Let´s get socially connected!

I would like to volunteer to share experiences. I work with ePals, one of the largest online communities of K12 students and teachers, exceeding 600,000 teachers and with 16 million users in 200 countries and territories.
Many EFL teachers are part of this community of practice.
