Events to be webcast by TESOL CALL-IS from New Orleans

The paper articulates what is needed for several projects I’ve got going at the moment. The slides would probably get me through several talks I’m giving in Brazil and Argentina in July and August this summer. For example, in my presentations at BrazTESOL I’ll be talking about some of the affordances of teaching and learning through a PLN (personal learning network) and the social networking, tagging, RSS, and paradigm shifting associated with that concept.

Why?

* Relevance: many students already use Twitter in their own language and so may well be interested in using it in their target language. It has become a part of social, business and academic discussions and it has already entered mainstream communication.
* Quick: the conciseness of twitter writing means that it is quick to do. So it is easy to add to other learning activities, be it in the classroom or for homework.
* Distinct style: the brevity of twitter (each message is limited to 140 characters) means that the writing has a different style from other online writing (eg emails and blog posts). Although approximately the same length of an SMS message, the tweet has a different style; abbreviations such as “gr8” for “great” are not generally used in microblogging.
* Conversational: using Twitter is a chatty way to communicate and mimics the quick succession of comments in a normal conversation.

How can we use it for language learning?
