The aPLaNet is a European Union funded project to help language educators who are not yet using social networks to understand:
1. What are social networks for language educators?
2. Why they should use them?
3. How they can get involved?

The project will help you join and use Internet Personal Learning Networks (PLN) on social networks (SNs).

The project has now reached its final conference and I would be grateful if you could disseminate it to your membership, thank you.
