Using Citizen Media Tools to Promote Under-Represented Languages

I gladly accepted an invitation to participate as a practitioner for the on-line dialogue on Using Citizen Media Tools to Promote Under-Represented Languages from November 16 to 22, 2011 from New Tactics http://www.newtactics.org .

I am writing this post in the hope to raise more publicity of this key initiative which will allow anyone with a web connection to ask questions to a team of experts who use ICT to promote and revive under represented languages.

This is a chance to explore new ideas and seek guidance and maybe assistance on language projects whether they are a thought or already exist. Promoting under represented languages and engaging in language revitalisation is a new genre for ICT and web communications in an exciting new era of social media and more connectivity than ever before.

I have worked with some of the other experts and feel excited about the diversity of skills and knowledge that has been gathered together.

I envisage that there will be plenty of questions and answers and that there will be more support for those under represented languages that are in need of support and answers.
