Below is an old Mission Statement and what I used to do with the website.
Currently, the website has access to videos, Power Point presentations, and other materials from past conference presentations on how video cameras can be used at the sentence, paragraph, and essay levels. Moreover, video cameras were also used for math word problems.
In addition to the video materials, many links are useful for those at developmental levels in reading and writing. These links are also useful for any kind of writing.
The site will be updated with other materials as the need arises.

The photo above was taken during a class in which villagers are learning the Hani written language at a Hani village in June of 2005. The Hani are one of many indigenous groups who populate a wide area of the mountainous border regions of China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, and Laos. Before 1957, the Hani did not have a written language. It’s about 10:00 pm on a summer night in the Ailao mountains, southern Yunnan, People’s Republic of China. These are farmers learning to read and write in their own language. Learning to read and write in any language is empowering; by learning to read and write, this community is transitioning into a more complex, more beneficial level of thinking, communicating, and living.
