One to One Thousand Proof of Concept
by Samuel Sennott
The Tar Heel Reader just reached the one thousand books mark this past week. This is so exciting for students and teachers alike. So much thanks for the work of the UNC Center for Literacy and Disability Studies and for the Computer Science work of Gary Bishop and now his class. I think that the Tar Heel Reader offers some initial proof of concept that we can create solutions to questions and challenges that we have by working together. In this case, everyone submitting a book or two truly makes a difference. See how it becomes even more powerful when you get a teaming of literacy specialists with computer scientists. The internet and low cost computing really does offer an unprecedented platform for collaboration. I look forward to seeing this idea grow and blosom. Also, it is exciting to consider the next steps and the refining of initial goals.
