About the author

Thomas DeVere Wolsey, EdD, teaches online courses at Portland State University and elsewhere and is the founder of a consulting firm, the Institute to Advance International Education. Previously he worked in public schools for 20 years teaching English and social studies. His research explores how language informs thinking about content and how the interactions of students in digital and face-to-face environments change their learning. Dr. Wolsey is also interested in the intersections of traditional literacies with digital literacies, specifically focusing on how those literacies affect teacher preparation and professional development.

Diane Lapp, EdD, is Distinguished Professor of Education in the Department of Teacher Education at San Diego State University. She has taught elementary, middle, and high school and serves as Director of Learning at Health Sciences High and Middle College. Her research and instruction focus on issues related to struggling readers and writers who live in economically deprived urban settings, and their families and teachers. Widely published, Dr. Lapp has received the Outstanding Teacher Educator of the Year Award from the International Literacy Association, among other honors, and is a member of both the International Reading Hall of Fame and the California Reading Hall of Fame.
