This week I’ve been:
- Helping kids hack their school websites at Maker Faire (using X-Ray Goggles) with my Mozilla / Make Things Do Stuff colleagues.
- Hosting the weekly Web Literacy standard call.
- Talking to people via Skype and in person about integrating with the Open Badges Infrastructure (OBI). I had my closest meeting yet – just 5 miles away! Also, excitingly, it looks like CoderDojo might be badgifying their belts!
- Starting planning an Open Badges workshop focusing on assessment at the Mozilla London office in June. I then had to postpone/cancel it as I’ve been invited to an EU summit on the same date.
- Sharing the first draft of Mozilla’s Web Literacy standard with the Webmaker community on the weekly call.
- Participating in the first week of the Mozilla #teachtheweb MOOC.
- Talking with Vinay Gupta about an idea about a ‘Firecloud’ evolution of the Firefox web browser that we’re considering submitting to the Mozilla Labs Hatchery.
- Setting a date in July for an Open Badges workshop at the University of Hull.
- Helping judge a Technology Strategy Board funding round including some work around Open Badges.
- Presenting and answering questions at an Open Badges briefing session for Leicester schools, organised by Josie Fraser. My slides are here.
Next week it’s Bank Holiday (woo!) then I’m in London on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning for a meeting with Lord Jim Knight. Then on Friday I’m in Salford to talk to the BBC about Open Badges for their CPD programme(s).
