This week I’ve been:
- Interviewing more people about Web Literacy Map 2.0:
- Paul Oh & Christina Cantrill (National Writing Project, USA)
- Kathryn Meisner & Leah Gilliam (Hive Learning Networks, Canada & USA)
- Ani Martinez (Remake Digital Learning Corps / Sprout Fund / Hive Pittsburgh, USA)
- Larissa Shapiro (Mozilla, USA)
- Howard Rheingold (Independent thinker/author, USA)
- Andrew Sliwinski (Mozilla, USA)
- Agreeing (with Lyndsey Britton & Lauren Summers) on 8th November 2014 as the date for a re-arranged Maker Party North East.
- Selling my iPad Mini. I’ve bought a 6.4″ Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet to replace both it and my Moto G (the 3G version). I’m still waiting for delivery as it was about £50 cheaper to order it from Amazon Germany instead of Amazon UK!
- Giving feedback on designs for a (much needed) Webmaker badge landing page.
- Attending GitClub, led by Ricardo Vazquez.
- Connecting with Gordon Gow about some potentially overlapping interests in web literacy-related mobile learning projects in Sri Lanka.
- Speaking at (and attending) a Code Acts in Education seminar at the University of Stirling, organised by Ben Williamson. It was a great event, at which I met great people and learned loads! My slides are here.
- Recording videos as part of the guidance for people to earn Mozilla’s ‘remix the web’ badge on the forthcoming iDEA award platform.
Next week I’m at home all week, interviewing more people about the Web Literacy Map, and starting to think about synthesizing what I’ve been hearing so far. I should also start thinking about my Mozilla Festival sessions and deliverable for the Badge Alliance Digital & Web Literacy working group….
