Social networks are playing an increasingly important role in our personal lives, and also in education. In this webinar we examine what social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook or Google+ have to do with the world of language teaching. Whether you’re a teacher, trainer, DoS or school administrator, this session will help you think about how to create and engage with online social networks, on a personal level and professional level, as well as with your English language students. You will leave the session with some clear ideas about how to get the most of a number of social networks.
