Welcome to my new home on the Web—which replaces the
ESL/EFL and Developmental Writing resource lists I had online
for a number of years. Those items have been retired; my plans
are to replace them with new materials that deal with only a few
specific topics that I'm especially interested in and to include
exercises and examples relatedto these topics.
I'll be putting new materials online gradually. I've just added
content in the areas listed below, and I'll be expanding it steadily.

Textbooks and pencil cases may rest on shelves collecting dust during the summer months, but 21st century educators know that learning opportunities do not end with the school year. The Internet is packed full of exciting educational content – and it never takes a summer vacation.
Learning opportunities are available year-round on the World Wide Web, and Curriki has rounded up some excellent take-home resources for students to investigate, practice, and play with over the summer.

Presentation Title: Keeping Literacy in 21st Century Literacy
Presentation Description: In this session I outline the movement towards multiple literacies and 21st century literacies. Within this framework I present concrete strategies and methods for pursing the traditional notion of literacy – reading and writing fluency – in an online context. In particular I hope to show how “think alouds” and other literacy modeling strategies can be enhanced by Web 2.0 technologies like Diigo for social bookmarking and Screentoaster for easy screen capture and content delivery. Part of this enhancement comes from the ability to customize instruction to individual student needs and interests. This presentation is a relatively equal mix of teaching theory, literacy pedagogy, and technology integration.

Mag+, a concept video on the future of digital magazines
I’ve got something I want to share with you.
We’ve been working with our friends at Bonnier R&D exploring the future of digital magazines. Bonnier publish Popular Science and many other titles.
Magazines have articles you can curl up with and lose yourself in, and luscious photography that draws the eye. And they’re so easy and enjoyable to read. Can we marry what’s best about magazines with the always connected, portable tablet e-readers sure to arrive in 2010?
This video prototype shows the take of the Mag+ project.

A fascinating discussion on the development of the 'reading brain': how the development of reading has brought radical changes to the functioning of the brain, and what might happen to our brains as reading gives way to digital and visual culture.
This interview was first broadcast on Late Night Live on 2 April 2008.

How Internet rewiring us, Small and colleagues monitored the brains of 24 adults as they performed a simulated Web search, and again as they read a page of text. During the Web search, those who reported using the Internet regularly in their everyday lives showed twice as much signaling in brain regions responsible for decision-making and complex reasoning, compared with those who had limited Internet exposure. The findings, to be published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, suggest that Internet use enhances the brain's capacity to be stimulated, and that Internet reading activates more brain regions than printed words. The research adds to previous studies that have shown that the tech-savvy among us possess greater working memory (meaning they can store and retrieve more bits of information in the short term), are more adept at perceptual learning (that is, adjusting their perception of the world in response to changing information), and have better motor skills.
