  1. Hi Shelly,
    Wow! You have had quite a year. Thank you so much for sharing so many amazing tools in 2010. A huge congratulations on the book and the ELTons nomination. It was such a pleasure being part of last year’s VRT conference. Thanks for convincing me to share MyEC with your participants. It has been fun sharing m-learning apps with you. I really enjoyed our Skype chats too. Can’t wait to meet you in 2011!

    • Tara,

      I feel the same about you! I really can’t wait to meet you in Brighton. I’m sure we are going to be the nerds in the corner sharing our different apps and filled with enthusiasm! By the way you will love this new one I found out about this weekend, Balloonimals

  2. Hi Shelly,

    Thanks for the round-up, I have enjoyed following you and your blog through last year and particularly liked your anti-bullying post, an issue which, sadly, is still a problem where I teach in adult education. I hope you have a good year and look forward to reading more great posts and ideas,

    all the best

    • Hi Andrew!

      Thank you for the kind comments. My favorite pieces don’t usually get the most hits so I appreciate the comment about the anti-bullying post. I hope you have a great year, too, and perhaps I will see you soon at a conference like IATEFL or ISTEK?
