MCTLC Leaps into the Future with its First Webinar

To Tweet or Not to Tweet: Is that really the question?

On December 3, 2011 from 10 – 12 CST, we will meet via Wimba Live Classroom to discuss the latest trends of using different social media applications in our classrooms, particularly to teach languages. We will look at Twitter, Facebook, LiveMocha, blogs, and other medium as we first work to familiarize ourselves with these applications and then strive to understand the best ways to use these as pedagogical tools. We will examine the advantages and disadvantages of each platform. Participants will also learn characteristics of today’s learners and ways to engage those learning preferences, with or without technology! All you need to join us is a computer with internet access and a microphone / speakers or phone. We’ll do the rest! So, don’t wait another day to learn more about tweeting, blogging, and more.

The cost is $10 for MCTLC members and $40 for nonmembers. You will receive a certificate for 2 CEU’s. Registrants will receive an email from the presenter with the necessary login credentials to access the webinar.
