"Teaching is a collaborative profession. We all improve our teaching not only by using the strategies of others but by sharing our own ideas. ReadWriteThink.org is a wonderful forum for teachers to provide resources to other teachers. My students have benefitted from the terrific work of the teachers who contribute to the site and I am happy to be one of those teachers."

James Welsh is a doctoral student in Childhood Education and Literacy Studies at the University of South Florida and Assistant Director of the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. In addition to elementary teaching experience, James was the lead trainer for the USF College of Education Laptop Initiative and directs a digital video summer camp, now in its seventh year. James conducts research with the Contemporary Literacies Collaborative at USF. His research interests include education policy, critical media literacy, student creation of multimedia texts, and the use of genre in student composition.

James has presented at numerous regional and national conferences, including the International Reading Association, the American Educational Research Association, the College Reading Association, the American Reading Forum, and the National Reading Conference.
