…for making technology a bridge,
not a barrier.

This site is a place for me to share my ideas about the impact of ubiquitous technology on the lives of adults with literacy and English language learning needs, particularly recently arrived refugees and immigrants. The site is an invitation to practitioners and scholars to engage in the work of making technology a bridge to learner success and to mitigate its potential to become yet another barrier to stability for such learners.
