LangCamp 2014

Page history last edited by Bethanie Carlson Drew 6 years, 3 months ago

Welcome to #LangCamp 2014!

This is our virtual retreat for world language educators, wherever they are, to collaborate in curriculum development. The idea started with a #Langchat discussion on Twitter (every Thursday at 8pm EST) toward the end of the 2012-2013 school year, and since we couldn't all make it to the beach before school started back, we made plans to meet online to discuss changes we wanted to make in our curriculum over the summer.


This year, though, we want to make LangCamp a face-to-face reality! Right now Asheville, NC and Memphis, TN have been suggested, and we're looking at early/mid July. We'll post updates as we make more plans. Feel free to tweet your #LangCamp suggestions!


Let Bethanie know if you would like to pursue this:  lovemysummer@gmail.com 


How will we collaborate?

Of course we have the #LangCamp hashtag on Twitter for exchanges of <140 characters, but we also hope to "meet" online and collect resources, develop ideas, and generally teach each other. This wiki will be our central hub for coordinating meetings and resources. We will be using the following platforms to share ideas:

Where do we start?

We're in the process of hashing out the where and when for our face-to-face camp through Twitter discussions. Of course we welcome virtual participants, as well, so you may join the Twitter discussions to select this year's topics by using the #LangCamp hashtag to ask and answer questions or by posting here on the wiki.


Each topic page will have an area for Questions at the top, for you to post problems that you've experienced or that you can foresee, as well as a Suggestions section where you can post solutions and brainstorms you've had.


To add to either the Question or Suggestion section, you will need to make sure that you have joined this page so that you can edit the page and make your additions. There is, of course, also a comment section at the bottom of each page for you to second a question or add your thoughts on the suggestions already offered.


What will we talk about?

Here's what we talked about last year:



What should we add this year? Give us suggestions by tweeting out your ideas with #LangCamp as part of your 140 characters, or post in the comments below!


When will we meet?

Of course you can Tweet a colleague any day, any time, but we'd like to schedule some time to talk to each other on various topics, at least once per topic. See the Real Time Meeting page for more information about upcoming plans.
