  1. Hi Ruby and all,

    I’d like to tell everyone about a few learning technology sites that I’ve joined recently.
    If you haven’t already, you should get signed up for these learning technology groups. The content is totally relevant to what we are studying on this course. The group coordinators and other members have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.

    As well as giving participants the chance to become involved in using a number of different Web 2.0 technologies, there will also be discussion of where we are now in the field of language learning and learning technologies, and where we are going. Have we reached a time when learning technologies are a ‘normalised’ part of our practice, or is there still some way to go?
