The first #LINCchat of 2018 started a bit slower than usual, but the conversation picked up as old and new #LINCchat-ers joined the conversation to discuss their favourite language learning activities using multimedia, the criteria they use to select media, how images can be used to encourage critical thinking, where to find multimedia, and professional development for visual and media literacy.   

Thank-you to the educators who shared their thoughts during this #LINCchat and those who added their thoughts after the chat: @vislief, @EmilyHardy22, @JoyOfESL, @jennifermchow, @JenArtan, @shahghasy, @mrpottz, @ambartosik, @DawnTorvik, @seburnt, @capontedehann, and @thespreadingoak. 

Thank-you also to moderators, Svetlana Lupasco (@StanzaSL) and Bonnie Jean Nicholas (@EALstories) for facilitating the discussion and keeping us on track.
