Back in May 2011 I put together a 9-minute screencast showing how I used a (previous work’s) MacBook Pro. That proved reasonably popular with over 18,000 views on YouTube and plenty of comments here.

This video gives a useful overview: What is Hybrid Days? from Hybrid Days on Vimeo. My presentation is entitled How to Develop Digital Literacies in Yourself and Others and I’ll be delivering […]
