I have been reading many web pages and papers and its hard to remember what was relevant and what not, and so we have decided to put them all in one collective space, so that my supervisors and research team mates from the Education department (and anyone who is interested in also reading the articles) can browse what I have been reading and read the articles and pages themselves. I will continually be updating this page as I read and find new articles and sites that may be of interest.

The list below is an incomplete version of all that I have read, what I want to do is find a way of outputing my bibTex to text or html and then importing it here for display so that I don't have to write things each time... I am currently working on that and hopefully it will be here soon, so that you can all see a complete list of the things I have been reading.
