Would you be a more motivated language teacher if you had a support network of 1000s of teachers rooting for you? The 30 Goals Challenge is in its 2nd year and has shown how through social networks and mobile apps, like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, podcasts, vodcasts and other tools, educators are helping each other become better educators. They are completing goals together and offering help as well as ideas! Find out how you can participate in this journey by joining this workshop. Discover the goals, how they impact your instructional methods, and see real examples of teachers worldwide integrating the goals in their classrooms.
