slide presentation for TESL Language Camp XV 2014. We will have been given a day slot to handle a workshop on on any topic of choice. Since the theme for this year's language camp is Pushing the Limit, it would be appropriate to have a workshop on technology in the classroom or multimedia or web2.0 app of sort... this is the first draft of the presentation. I'm going to demo and take the students along for a hands on experience on a few of those mentioned software and web2.0 apps.
