9:05 pm bcnpaul1: Is it realistic to expect students in a classroom-based environment to form a PLN? #eltchat

9:10 pm Marisa_C: RT @annabooklover: Hello #eltchat friends! I think sts form their PLNs in conventional classrooms too! > true
9:10 pm ShellTerrell: @Shaunwilden @rliberni I don’t necessarily agree with naturally because it requires some maintenance & participation for it to work #ELTChat
9:11 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Marisa_C: RT @annabooklover: Hello #eltchat friends! I think sts form their PLNs in conventional classrooms too! > true
9:11 pm bcnpaul1: RT @ShellTerrell: I can’t help but think it would be great to have a student perspective here #ELTChat – I think that about a lot of things!

9:11 pm europeaantje: I´ve never used the term PLN with my sts but I foster group cohesion,reflection on learning and they/we got the bar after class 🙂 #eltchat
9:11 pm annabooklover: A PLN may be the friends you call with a question late in the evening, or the parent you ask for help #eltchat
9:11 pm merylvdm: My own teens connect through online forums and Facebook – they share essays written for school, new technologies, educational sites #eltchat
9:11 pm Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell So it requires the teacher to take part? #ELTChat
9:11 pm cerirhiannon: RT @europeaantje: I´ve never used the term PLN with my sts but I foster group cohesion,reflection on learning and they/we got the bar after class 🙂 #eltchat
9:11 pm harrisonmike: RT @annabooklover: A PLN may be the friends you call with a question late in the evening, or the parent you ask for help #eltchat
9:11 pm Lemness: Can i ask – what does #eltchat mean?
9:11 pm tarabenwell: @katekidney Totally! EnglishClub has a Facebook page with thousands of learners worldwide. Many now practice English together.#ELTChat
9:12 pm DinaDobrou: @ShellTerrell @Shaunwilden @rliberni Especially if ur introducing them to the online idea of PLNs. It takes preparation on T’s part #ELTchat
9:12 pm rliberni: @ShellTerrell I have to say to get my Gapfillers folk to do this takes a lot of ‘pushing’ but physically it may be easier #eltchat
9:12 pm ShellTerrell: @Shaunwilden Not necessarily but I think it’s good if the student includes their teacher & wants to in their PLN #ELTchat
9:12 pm bcnpaul1: A lot of our students study for only 3 hrs a week & I wonder how motivated they are outside of those 3 hrs to form a PLN #eltchat
9:12 pm rliberni: @Lemness English language teachers chat #eltchat
9:12 pm NewsNeus: RT @ShellTerrell: Great idea! RT @annapires: How about a school Facebook page? That’s what I do to share useful links & info with sts. #ELTchat
9:12 pm europeaantje: RT @annabooklover: A PLN may be the friends you call with a question late in the evening, or the parent you ask for help #eltchat | yes!
9:12 pm ShellTerrell: @Shaunwilden @rliberni Perhaps with some communities it takes a moderator or a few leaders to guide others? #ELTChat
9:12 pm tarabenwell: @europeaantje I hadn’t either, but then I thought PLN actually has a nice ring to it. They might like it! #ELTChat
9:12 pm rliberni: RT @tarabenwell: @europeaantje I hadn’t either, but then I thought PLN actually has a nice ring to it. They might like it! #ELTChat
9:13 pm cerirhiannon: RT @bcnpaul1: A lot of students study for only 3 hrs a wk – how motivated they are outside of those 3 hrs to form PLN #eltchat>blogs help
9:13 pm ShellTerrell: RT @DinaDobrou: Especially if ur introducing them to the online idea of PLNs. It takes preparation on T’s part #ELTchat
9:13 pm ShellTerrell: RT @europeaantje: RT @annabooklover: A PLN may be the friends you call with a question late in the evening, or the parent you ask for help #eltchat | yes!
9:13 pm EclipsingX: #ELTCHAT my learners were shocked at the thought of facebook for ed. One told me he had closed all SM accounts because he =dlstracted
9:13 pm Shaunwilden: @towittertoo we use epals between classes in our school network which is international, does that count? #ELTChat
9:13 pm fionamau: RT @rliberni: @Shaunwilden personally I think a PLN is a group of learners who come together ‘naturally’ to learn so cld be within a class #eltchat
9:13 pm harrisonmike: @bcnpaul1 3hrs not enough to improve, IMO. Those sts HAVE TO do extra to succeed #eltchat But PLN or other info sources most useful??
9:13 pm DinaDobrou: @towittertoo @rliberni @Shaunwilden Hm, true. I was thinking of matching classes between the group of schools I work for. #ELTchat
9:13 pm europeaantje: RT @Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell So it requires the teacher to take part? #ELTChat | no. why? sts can support each other, too
9:13 pm cerirhiannon: RT @ShellTerrell: RT @DinaDobrou: if ur introducing them to online idea of PLNs. It takes preparation on T’s part #ELTchat > and patience
9:13 pm Marisa_C: @tarabenwell I think the term PLN kind of formalises sth and makes Ss more aware of the need to form it and maintain it #ELTChat
9:13 pm cerirhiannon: RT @europeaantje: RT @Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell So it requires the teacher to take part? #ELTChat | no. why? sts can support each other, too
9:13 pm tarabenwell: @bcnpaul1 Maybe they need a group interest other than merely “learning English”. For example, learners who like music. #ELTChat
9:13 pm rliberni: @ShellTerrell I think that is true a ot depends on the makeup of your group – mine are quite slow no real catalysts as yet #eltchat
9:14 pm bcnpaul1: @cerirhiannon agree w/ the blogs comment. anything like that motivates them to direct their own learning is a great help #eltchat
9:14 pm Lemness: @rliberni thank u so much. Im not an english teacher but its fascinating to watch the interaction. #eltchat
9:14 pm kmhmartin: RT @europeaantje: RT @annabooklover: A PLN may be the friends you call with a question late in the evening, or the parent you ask for help #eltchat | yes!
9:14 pm kmhmartin: RT @ShellTerrell: RT @DinaDobrou: Especially if ur introducing them to the online idea of PLNs. It takes preparation on T’s part #ELTchat
9:14 pm rliberni: @annapires I would think it might be a few members of a class – the class is a bit artificial #eltchat
9:14 pm ShellTerrell: @cerirhiannon @bcnpaul1 But isn’t the PLN participation part of studying? Maybe more meaningful than HMWK give by instructor? #ELTChat
9:14 pm oflazmerve: RT @EclipsingX: less than 24 hours until the BC ELT bloggers reveal their intense 28 day experiences. Very excited! RU? #ECLPSCHAT #ELTCHAT #EDCHAT #ELT
9:14 pm tarabenwell: @harrisonmike @bcnpaul1 Please invite them to MyEC. It’s free and fun and growing quickly! There’s something for everyone. #ELTChat
9:14 pm DinaDobrou: Etwinning…a community for schools in Europe. http://bit.ly/7njlS9 #ELTchat

9:14 pm cerirhiannon: RT @ShellTerrell: @cerirhiannon @bcnpaul1 But isn’t the PLN participation part of studying? Maybe more meaningful than HMWK give by instructor? #ELTChat
9:14 pm rliberni: @Lemness no problem yes it must be from your perspective #eltchat
9:14 pm annabooklover: But let us not forget that there are kids who have neither parents who can help, nor internet, nor friends nearby. #eltchat
9:15 pm europeaantje: @bcnpaul1 sts are motivated to create “PLN” out of own interest: what do you do? how did you do this? what was the homework? #eltchat
9:15 pm ShellTerrell: RT @annabooklover: But let us not forget that there are kids who have neither parents who can help, nor internet, nor friends nearby. #eltchat
9:15 pm rliberni: RT @theteacherjames: @Shaunwilden @shellterrell #eltchat …or need a teacher to get the ball rolling?
9:15 pm Teacherhorizons: @Lemness @rliberni I completely agree #eltchat

9:15 pm rliberni: RT @europeaantje: @bcnpaul1 sts are motivated to create “PLN” out of own interest: what do you do? how did you do this? what was the homework? #eltchat
9:15 pm bcnpaul1: @ShellTerrell @cerirhiannon true but sometimes hmwk is a start along the path to greater involvement in their own learning #eltchat
9:15 pm katekidney: http://www.helpforenglish.cz/ this is a kind of PLN for Czech and even other students, thanks to Marek Vít and his coworkers!#ELTChat
9:15 pm fionamau: RT @annapires: Students need to be motivated to form their PLN. Not all teachers are motivated to form their own. #ELTchat
9:15 pm merylvdm: I teach a Media class and this semester they are all required to blog – and I am encouraging them to comment on each other’s. #ELTchat
9:15 pm Lemness: I will just lurk and listen. RT @Teacherhorizons: @Lemness @rliberni I completely agree #eltchat
9:16 pm ShellTerrell: @bcnpaul1 @cerirhiannon Many teachers who aren’t using PLNs like us don’t give this kind of hmwk they give wkshts & drills #Eltchat
9:16 pm rliberni: @DinaDobrou good idea & there will probably be some who gravitate towards a subgrp and want to meet online? #eltchat
9:16 pm bcnpaul1: @tarabenwell thanks Tara. I’ll have a look after this #eltchat
9:16 pm cerirhiannon: RT @bcnpaul1: @ShellTerrell @cerirhiannon sometimes hmwk is a start along the path to greater involvement #eltchat> shared hwk tasks helps
9:16 pm ShellTerrell: RT @rliberni: @DinaDobrou good idea & there will probably be some who gravitate towards a subgrp and want to meet online? #eltchat
9:16 pm tarabenwell: @Marisa_C Agreed! When I challenged them to identify their PLN, some worried about leaving people out. I learned. 🙂 #ELTChat
9:16 pm fionamau: #eltchat my experience is that the groups that have a ‘social English’ element in a bar once a week r the ones that form a PLN.
9:16 pm ShellTerrell: RT @merylvdm: I teach a Media class and this semester they are all required to blog – and I am encouraging them to comment on each other’s. #ELTchat
9:16 pm europeaantje: RT @annapires: Can a class form a PLN? Or does it have to an individual thing? #ELTchat | ideally a class would be a PLN ???
9:16 pm ShellTerrell: RT @katekidney: http://www.helpforenglish.cz/ this is a kind of PLN for Czech and even other students, thanks to Marek Vít and his coworkers!#ELTChat
9:16 pm bcnpaul1: @ShellTerrell true. And it’s a real shame #eltchat
9:16 pm treeves: @fionamau so true #eltchat
9:17 pm ShellTerrell: Gr8 point! RT @annapires: Students need to be motivated to form their PLN. Not all teachers are motivated to form their own. #ELTchat
9:17 pm cerirhiannon: RT @fionamau: #eltchat … ‘social English’ element in a bar once a week r the ones that form a PLN. > social element can also be online

9:17 pm rliberni: RT @ShellTerrell: Gr8 point! RT @annapires: Students need to be motivated to form their PLN. Not all teachers are motivated to form their own. #ELTchat
9:17 pm ShellTerrell: RT @DinaDobrou: Etwinning…a community for schools in Europe. http://bit.ly/7njlS9 #ELTchat
9:17 pm fionamau: #eltchat for example summer intensive classes that have a coffee break ‘across the road’, or Friday drink after class
9:17 pm Shaunwilden: RT @bcnpaul1: @ShellTerrell how do you get your students involved in forming a PLN? #eltchat Yes do tell am curious 🙂
9:17 pm ShellTerrell: Really good question! RT @bcnpaul1: how do you get your students involved in forming a PLN? #eltchat
9:17 pm tarabenwell: @merylvdm Great! If you can let them know that commenting is equally important right from the beginning, they will thrive! #ELTChat
9:18 pm bcnpaul1: RT @annapires: Can a class form a PLN? Or does it have to an individual thing? #ELTchat | ideally a class would be a PLN ???

9:18 pm hermonhermit: RT @DinaDobrou: Etwinning…a community for schools in Europe. http://bit.ly/7njlS9 #ELTchat
9:18 pm harrisonmike: #eltchat PLN would be a very difficult concept and the tools would be tricky for ESOL students (e.g. asylum seekers)
9:19 pm ShellTerrell: @Shaunwilden @bcnpaul1 Honestly I motivate them to join established communities like Gapfillers, Voxopop, & My English Club #ELTChat
9:19 pm EclipsingX: @cerirhiannon @bcnpaul1 I am trying a non pressure blog approach. each has their own and they research when and how they want to. #ELTCHAT
9:19 pm DinaDobrou: @rliberni We already have that in my school. I’m working on bringing it online. #ELTchat
9:19 pm harrisonmike: #eltchat many tools and sites that we use to form and maintain PLN are very ‘busy’. That would overwhelm some sts.
9:19 pm cerirhiannon: @bcnpaul1 @annapires or class would be starting point4 PLN – icontact could be taken beyond the class eg via sharing blogs #eltchat
