As an avid supporter of 🔬, 💻, and 🎓, I figured it's about time to join . I'm currently a Fellow teaching English at Oranim College in Israel. Just finished up my MA at the University of Texas at Austin in May and am looking forward to starting my PhD next year in the field of second language acquisition with an emphasis on educational technology. Location for that is TBD (applications are my life at the moment).

Stanford and UPenn applications are in. Just one more to go. 🎓

every paper i read cites at least 2 other papers that i immediately add to my "to-read" list. it's like a hydra, this will literally never end.

Decided to read @RufusPollock@Twitter’s new book *The Open Revolution* for . Despite some glaring grammatical mistakes, I found it a provocative read about the direction we’re heading in with our present Closed world. The potential for innovation in an Open society is incredibly exciting. Pollock provides ideas on alternatives to the monopoly of intellectual property and invites readers to think outside the box. Let’s make this happen!!

Finally succeeded at hosting my CV at juandpinto.com. Jekyll and Github Pages have proved to have a steeper learning curve than I originally expected!

A full recording of my recent presentation, “Language Learning for the 21st Century: Interpersonal Communication Through Digital Communities”—given remotely at the Texas Language Center—can now be found online 😉 Check it out!
