The Reading Matrix has started a blog! The purpose of this blog is to
create a forum for an active conversation among graduate students,
educators, researchers and anyone else involved in language, literacy and
technology education. It is hoped that individuals who have an interest
in these subjects will engage with each other to further contribute to
these areas of discussion and offer personal and professional insights.
We want to know what you think! http://readingmatrix.blogspot.com/
