ATTW Proposal Accepted

Happy New Year, All!

Following my October 24th post of a proposal to present at the ATTW conference, I recently got word that it was accepted. I am certainly going to accept the offer, and I’m thoroughly excited for the opportunity to put out to the academic community this concept (Simulating Synchronicity in the Online Classroom Through Embedded Audio-Visual Discussions), which is a foundational portion of my dissertation research.

While the elation of ATTW acceptance has not yet cleared, I am now diving into creating a proposal to present in June at the Media Ecology Association conference. This year it is being held at St Louis University (yes, I will be in awe, basking and wallowing in the Ong archives, at every open moment). I think this is a wise venue in which to discuss my ideas on digital orality with the academe community.

      I just want to encourage you to send in your proposal. We’d be interested in your work, and some of the leading Ong experts will be participating, including John Miles Foley, who will be the keynote speaker. Alan Kay of Xerox PARC fame will be another featured speaker, along with Bruce Gronbeck, and possibly Eric McLuhan.
