This week I’ve been:
- Interviewing people. A lot. I’m starting the ball rolling towards a v2.0 update of the Web Literacy Map (which looks prettier here in the Webmaker resources section). To do this, I’m recording the conversations and posting the audio together with a summary on this blog. Below is a list of the 15 people I’ve talked to this week, together with links to the recordings – where I’ve had time to process them. You can find the repository on archive.org.
- Laura Hilliger (Mozilla, Germany)
- Alvar Maciel (Teacher & Mozillian, Argentina)
- Bon Stewart & Dave Cormier (Educators/Researchers, Canada)
- Mikko Kontto (Teacher & Mozillian, Finland)
- Ian O’Byrne (Academic, USA)
- Roz Hussin (Learning Technologist, USA)
- Janet Laane Effron (Learning Consultant, USA)
- Kim Wilkens (Non-profit founder & Learning Consultant, USA)
- Jess Klein (Mozilla, USA)
- Christian Briggs (PhD student & Entrepreneur, USA)
- Carla Casilli (Badge Alliance, USA)
- Bobby Richter (Mozilla, Canada)
- Stephen Downes (Researcher, Canada)
- Dave Steer (Mozilla, USA)
- Chloe Varelidi (Mozilla, Greece/USA)
- Giving feedback on mockups for a new Webmaker badges landing page.
- Writing a blog post about the importance of web literacy and how it links to Maker Party (for EdTech Digest)
- Adding my thoughts to a thread by Jess Klein about feedback.
- Postponing Maker Party Newcastle – as I explain here.
- Interviewed for the OKCast. The resultant podcast is a decent introduction to my work at Mozilla.
- Writing up my workflow for capturing audio from interviews.
- Listening to Audrey Watters talk at Newcastle University. We then hung out in a local pub with Suzanne Hardy, Kin Lane, and Audrey’s mother. Awesome.
Next week I’ll be mostly at home, interviewing people and working on an video introduction to Mozilla’s badge for the iDEA award. On Friday I’m up in Stirling, at the invitation of Ben Williamson, to speak at a seminar.
