Two online gatherings you should be part of (today/tomorrow)

Earlier this week I led an #etmooc session on Digital Literacies. The slides for that are here and the video, audio, chat and etherpad archive can be found here. I’m involved in another couple of online gathering-type things in the new literacies arena this week that may also be of interest.

1. Twitter chat for #etmooc

I’m following up the above Digital Literacies #etmooc session with a Twitter chat at 10am PST / 3pm EST / 8pm GMT tomorrow night (Wednesday 20th February 2013). You don’t really need to do anything apart from follow the #etmooc hashtag and tweet accordingly.

2. Web Literacy standard online gathering

A couple of weeks ago we had a great kick-off online gathering for Mozilla’s upcoming work around a new, open learning standard for Web Literacy. There were many who couldn’t attend so we’re running the session again this Thursday (21st February 2013) at  9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm GMT.

Further details are at http://weblitstd2.eventbrite.com. The recording of the previous session, along with some of my thoughts around the subject can be found here.

I’d love to see your name pop up at either or both of these events. Do take part if you can! đŸ™‚

Digital literacies and why they’re important… for everyone!

(can’t see the video? click here!)

Nigel Robertson (@easegill) works at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. A few weeks back he asked if I’d have time to put together a short video about digital literacies for Digital Literacy @ Waikato Awareness Week.

He asked very nicely, so I looked at my calendar and carved out some time yesterday to put the above video together. It only took about 45 minutes from beginning (shooting the video) to end (starting upload to YouTube). My wife thinks it’s OK so it can’t be too bad!

Building on the back of my recent DMLcentral post entitled Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What’s the Difference? I’ve had a go at a more visual explanation of the relationship.

Here’s hoping it makes some sense! I’d love some feedback, if you have any. đŸ™‚

Web literacies? (v0.2 beta)

Web literacies? (v0.2 beta)

In the run-up to me starting full time with the Mozilla Foundation I’ve been continuing my thinking on web literacies.

The above diagram is based upon the excellent work of Michelle Levesque, my diagramming of her work, and some subsequent post-it notes.

I’m thinking out loud here.

Things that have changed since the last version:

  • Move from ‘web literacy’ to ‘web literacies’
  • Themes (exploring, connecting, building, protecting) organised hierarchically
  • Removal of ‘calling APIs’, ‘manipulating data’ and so on
  • Update: The colours no longer mean anything (thanks @PatParslow!)

I realise that the last of these could be contentious. The reason I’ve removed these more technical aspects has nothing to do with whether I think they’re important. Of course they are.

It’s just that if you start from the endpoint of describing someone who’s ‘web literate’ I think it’s entirely possible not to be able to ‘call an API’ yet still be web literate.

What do you think?

I’d really appreciate some feedback – this is still very early work! đŸ™‚
