About the authors

As a principal, Assistant Superintendent, university lecturer and courseware developer, Dr. Otto Toews has concentrated his research on developing digital learning resources and software with Apple and Microsoft on improving students’ ability to write expository text. In 1999, he received the Dr. John M. Brown Award ‘for his outstanding contribution to teacher education in Manitoba’.

He conducted a ten year Study on how to improve students’ ability to write paragraphs, essays and reports in a digital environment. The performance of the students in the Study was assessed by a research team from the University of Manitoba conducting pre- and post testing with pilot and control groups. The students in the pilot groups consistently showed greater improvements in their thinking and writing than the control groups.
