Instead his friend and colleague of 35 years, Dr. Tom Gage, delivered this presentation as Moffett's ombudsman. Moffett was too ill at the time to attend the conference; he passed two months after this video was produced. In it, he lays out his vision of how a teacher might use technology in a Language Arts classroom based around his theory of the three I's. This video was produced by Tom Gage, funded by Ray Romano, and posted by Damian Koshnick.
