Final Column
December 2013 Treasure Hunt

Hello and welcome to my very last Treasure Hunt column. This month,
I’d like to introduce a new presentation and project tool, list up
a few sites with lists of resources, and then say farewell.

First up is a site that deserves special mention: Buncee. It’s a
web tool that allows you or your students to create and share
multimedia projects on the web. It is easy to learn, easy to use,
and allows you to embed video or audio in slideshow presentations.

Since this is my last column, I’d like to leave you with some links
that you can continue to explore on your own.

Larry Ferlazzo’s blog is a great source of ideas and information.

Cybrary Man’s list of educational online tools is quite large and
contains a lot of great stuff.

Shelly Terrell is a very smart and very prolific presence on the web.
Follow her on Twitter (@ShellTerrell), or check out this great list
of (mostly listening) resources from her blog:

Ana Cristina is another person with a great eye for educational
technology for ESL/EFL classes. Her blog is inspirational. Here is
page with resources for language learners and teachers:

I think this list should keep you busy. There is a lot of great
stuff, but you’ll need to devote a little time to exploring these
resources. You might also want to follow these people on Twitter.

And that brings us to the end. I started this column in January of
2005 when the new editor of the new newsletter, Michiyo Maeda, asked
me to write something. I have greatly enjoyed writing the column
over the years, but my present job does not include much application
of new technology and I think there are other LET members who have
more to offer in a column like this, particularly as we move toward
greater use of mobile devices.

I’d like to thank everyone who has read this column over the years,
beginning with a great group of editors. I would like to thank the
LET leadership for their support and trust.

Take care and see you online,
