LangCamp 2013

Page history last edited by Laura Sexton 6 years, 3 months ago

Welcome to #LangCamp 2013!

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.


The beach offer still stands!  Come join me in NC!  We can investigate doing it this summer if people are interested.  However, it might be easier to do a weekend in September or October when it's still nice enough to be out, but the rates are more affordable.  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:



How do I get in on the action?

Fill out the form below to share your information and get added to our lists for communication.



Where do we start?

Once you've shared your information, pick a topic to explore, be it an area you want to know more about, or a topic that you can contribute to using your own vast knowledge reserves. 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?

In preliminary Twitter conversations, we determined that the following topics were what we wanted to focus on incorporating into our new curriculum:



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 Skype Meeting page for more information about upcoming plans.
