Follow TESOL 2012 Conference Via Paper.li

Dear Readers,

This year, I will be blogging about the convention remotely.  Even though I won’t be attending in person, I hope to find some online events, links, or recordings of sessions to learn from.  I’ll be posting those here for you.  Meanwhile, as the teachers from around the world start to head to Philadelphia for this annual conference, I thought we should start following their tweets.  The hash tag for the conference is #TESOL12.  I set up a Paper.li e-newspaper to capture the tweets and archive them for all of us to follow.

If you already use this social media tool, then add the hash tag to your content page.  Also, Paper.li allows you to pin items to your paper to allow for up-to-date information.  For example, that’s what I did today since I just created the new e-newspaper and the content was narrow.  I use Paper.li as my personal learning network (PLN).  Here is my PLN, The Online Educator: http://paper.li/teacherrogers/1301595898.  During the TESOL convention, both of these papers will publish daily and contain the #TESOL12 hashtag.

Please let me know which events will be broadcast or recorded, and I will post them to the blog.  Thanks!
