I’ve been down in Southampton today for a digital literacy conference organised at the University of Southampton. I was asked to collaborate with Sue Beckingham (@suebecks) on one of two ‘un-keynote’ presentations. Our presentation can be found below.
The opening ‘un-keynote’ was provided by Steve Wheeler (@timbuckteeth) and Cristina Costa (@cristinacost) who got us all up, moving about, and throwing paper at each other! All good fun and a great way to break the ice and get everyone warmed-up.
After a coffee break there were short (5-10 minute) presentations before lunch, and then Sue and I gave our un-keynote. We got people taking the eight essential elements of digital literacies I’ve discussed before and creating activities by mashing two or three of them together. It seemed to go down well.
I may feel a bit like a carbon criminal, but thank goodness for air travel: around one hour to fly but over six hours on the train! And given current crazy train prices (the UK has the highest in Europe) it costs about the same. Crazy.
