Learning2Gether is an informal, loosely knit professional group serving since 2010 as a venue for teachers to meet weekly online and model for one another collaborative community-building techniques for teacher professional development which participants can in turn apply to constructivist and connectivist learning activities with students. This workshop will introduce the concept and some of the free Web 2.0 tools involved, including survey results and blog post data suggesting high levels of student enthusiasm for Web 2.0 tools such as Prezi, Jing, Blogger, Google Docs, Slideshare.net, and SurveyMonkey. The problem of course is for teachers to become comfortable enough with such tools to use them effectively with students, and this where Learning2gether with peers helps teachers model for one another how Web 2.0 tools contribute to the learning of all concerned. This workshop will show participants how L2G functions as a wiki, and walk them through the movement’s call for participation and its recorded archives. The presenter will attempt to connect participants live with other teachers in the L2G PLN through one or more of our free synchronous presentation tools (e.g. Google+ Hangout). Participants will be encouraged to join future L2G activities or perhaps start such groups of their own.
