2. Edysgate revisited - Dyslexia wins

Please excuse a little self-indulgence. Back in September I mentioned about Edysgate, an EU-funded project I have been involved in, which seeks to improve underlying cognitive skills. Below are the words from a letter received this week.

"I am writing to you as the Chairman of the World Summit Award which was launched as part of the United Nations Summit on the Information Society and which is the unique global competition for recognition as the best in e-Content and Creativity. (

The World Summit Award Grand Jury 2009 met in New Delhi, India from April 1-8 bringing together eminent multimedia and e-Content experts from 34 countries. The Jury evaluated 545 entries (from an original 20,000) which were nominated from 157 countries to the Global WSA. The Jury selected the five most outstanding products in each of the eight WSA Categories as Winners.

I am delighted to officially inform you herewith that your product (Edysgate) has been evaluated by the Grand Jury as a world wide example of outstanding e-Content! Your product has been declared one of the WSA 09 Winners in your category and best practice of high quality e-Content!"

Unfortunately, the official reception is in Mexico in June.
