SLMOOC16: Professional Development and Networking in SL
Presenter Beth S. O’Connell - Beth Ghostraven in SL
Video recorded session of the event which was held on 23rd April 2016
Last weekend was spent on checking the opportunities for self-development of educators. Beth S.O'Connell made her presentation on SL and she was really great at presenting what we can find on SL. The world of educators and librarians is getting bigger and bigger and as a teacher of English I have access to a lot of virtual communities.
I could not attend the session but I watched the recording online and I was surprised at seeing how many communities we can find online. There are communities for any type of learner and educator. It is up to us to check and see what might meet our needs.
For educators the great advantages are the costs: Professional Development is free !! We work online from home and have virtual conferences about topis and issues related to education.
I will try to find out if there are online communities for ESL and ELT teachers as I feel that internet can open new ways for updating and learning thanks also to virtual worlds. I have seen that technology is really important and educators can share, learn and learn from the others. This is my world for getting connected to others!
My next step will be to check online and see what is going on.
This is the contact for learning more about such communities:
