Dear Members of the Organization of Teacher Educators in Literacy (OTEL) and Readers of Literacy Practice and Research–On-Line (LPR-Online)
We are delighted to welcome you to the inaugural issue of (LPR-Online), an open access journal. Converting the LPR journal from print to an online format enables literacy practitioners, university literacy educators, and literacy researchers to connect globally. Over the years, technology has revolutionized our lives, placing resources and useful information at our fingertips. We want to be part of this technology revolution and ensure that we keep up with innovations, knowing that literacy encompasses print-based, digital, visual, numeracy, and many more literacies.
