I haven't been posting so much here lately, considering the impending demise of not just this group but all Google+ Communities. But Learning2gether surpassed its 400th podcast recently, http://learning2gether.net

Meanwhile I wonder if you could help me inform presentations I am giving at TESOL in Atlanta and PELLTA in Malaysia this March and April.

I wonder if you would participate in a survey of how educators view their perceptions of how effectively social media is used to promote learning with students and with each other. The survey is available here: https://goo.gl/forms/eZt84YQcWS3kCE4t1

There are 22 questions in 4 sections. Ten are checklist or yes/no questions and ten request your opinions on a 5 point Likert scale (agree/disagree). The other two ask for a few words in response to what social media tools you prefer to work with students or when working with peers in personal learning environments. It is expected that respondents can complete the questionnaire in 10-12 minutes.

Responses are anonymous. The results will be used in presentations at conferences this year about the role of social media in language learning, but all educators are welcome to respond.

I would be very grateful if you can take a few minutes to respond to the survey. Please feel free to share the link to the survey with your educator colleagues.

Hello, Everyone. I am new in this community and I would like to have some recommendations about blogs and websites to use in my classes.

Learning2gether episode 394 will take place Fri Oct 19 0530 UTC when Vance Stevens connects with Hossein Vakili's class of ELT teachers in Tehran

Hossein has asked Vance to present at a web conference for his teachers and colleagues at Raja Language Institute in Tehran and speak to them about learner autonomy, which Vance suggests has to start out with teachers themselves becoming autonomous learners.

Participants can read beforehand:

Stevens, Vance. (2007). The Multiliterate Autonomous Learner: Teacher Attitudes and the Inculcation of Strategies for Lifelong Learning. Independence, Winter 2007 (Issue 42) . Available: VanceStevens_multiliterateAutonomousLearner.pdf

Associated slides are posted here: http://www.slideshare.net/vances/lets-start-with-teacher-autonomy-multiliteracies-and-lifelong-learning/.

This is not a top down presentation; it is meant to be a conversation. Hossein's students are to read / review Vance’s materials and be prepared to ask questions in order to hold a conversation with the invited speaker (15 min). Online participants in the event will then be invited to speak to Hossein and his students about their view of online facilitation (15 min).

The event will take place in Zoom, https://zoom.us/j/5786977523

The conversation will be recorded and posted to YouTube. By attending, you implicitly agree to being recorded.
