It’s been a funny old week. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
- Speaking to some people (including Charles Miglietti from the excellent tldr.io) about potentially aligning with the Web Literacy standard.
- Working on my slides for OER13.
- Submitting an abstract for the PLE13 conference.
- Attending (Tuesday) and keynoting (Wednesday) the OER13 conference. My presentation was entitled Ambiguity, OER and Open Badges.
- Suffering from two migraines, leading to me reading Migraine by Oliver Sacks to try and make sense of them. I took Thursday off to recover.
- Planning a workshop on Mozilla’s Webmaker tools as part of Nesta’s One Day Digital event.
- Driving up to Edinburgh on Friday afternoon with my family for the Nesta event.
- Running a workshop with thirteen 12-15 year-olds (7 boys, 6 girls) on Saturday. I still miss teaching, dammit.
Next week it’s Easter Monday so I’ve got a four-day working week. I was going to be running an Open Badges workshop for the BBC in Salford on Friday, but that’s been pushed back to be outside of the Easter holidays (so more people can attend). I’ll be planning my keynote at the PELeCON conference the week after next – which I’m entitling A History of Open Badges through the medium of animated GIFs.
