www.mappling.com is a new interactive website for practitioners, teachers and students of applied linguistics in any of its component areas - language teaching, literacy education, language pathology, translation and interpreting, lexicography, forensic linguistics. Help build and share resources with an online community of applied linguists by:
* posting questions and solutions on practical problems at the community helpdesk
* sharing your experiences and opinions on the discussion forum
* contributing your own experiences as case studies for other practitioners or students
* commenting on blog postings
The community is open to all: not just those in established centers of applied linguistics associated with universities and big professional organizations, but also those working in small schools and colleges, NGOs and communities, or as freelancers; and not only in areas of the world which may have been underserved or excluded from discussion in the past, but also in professional areas of interest which are not always seen as central to the discipline.
Mappling is available at http://www.mappling.com
