Week 5 - Evaluation & wrap-up 





This week offers an opportunity for us all to step back and reflect on what we have seen, learned and experienced during the whole EVO session. You are invited to reflect on what you have experienced during the last four weeks and  share your ideas with everyone about good practice. We are also suggesting - if the idea interests you and you have the time - that you take a look at an alternative virtual world – Twinity. You will also be encouraged  to continue learning and sharing through taking part in  the regular SLExperiment  meetings , which pre-date EVO2011 and are independent of it  and  will continue after this workshop has ended. If  appropriate, we can consider setting up our  own a new group affiliated to  SLExperiments. . In this final week we will also organise some round table discussions about language learning and teaching in virtual worlds, and these will be recorded,  archived  and made accessible for future reference.
