The initiative is a concept based around offering a mix of real and virtual opportunities for students primarily learning English to have more chance to use the language in a meaningful way.
We have just got the AUA Plus Facebook page up to start to get linkage to our national community of learners in Thailand. Facebook is the most used social network in Thailand closely followed by Line. We intend to get a Line group up soon as well as an e-mail list. These are mostly networking and marketing channels with a few online links right now. We do though have plans for a full online interactive approach at a later date. More on that another time. ScoopIt will be used to disseminate learning and fun sites and links that may be of use to students later. All tips on this appreciated.
Another aspect of AUA Plus is the real events, seminars and workshops we will be holding. The plan with these is to primarily find activities or topics that students are interested in and hold the events or seminars in English based on the topic. Some may be learning events and some may be more fun events or trips. And there will be more on these in the future, but they cover a huge range in the panning stage.
