This week I’ve been:
- Doing some (early) thinking about the link between smartphone apps and web literacy.
- Working out expenses and reimbursements. <yawn>
- Booking travel for the #TeachTheWeb team huddle in London next week.
- Thinking and writing about metrics and learning taxonomies. I’ve written more on this but I’m not ready to share it just yet.
- Responding to a request for where to start with digital literacies (see blog post).
- Moderating and contributing to a NWP Educator Innovator webinar on web literacy.
- Trying out Slack with my Mozilla colleagues.
- Discussing a couple of changes I’ve proposed to the Web Literacy Map with various people.
- Hosting this week’s #TeachTheWeb community call.
- Finishing the first draft of the upcoming Webmaker whitepaper. Karen Smith helped a lot with this, so I’m very grateful. It’ll be available for public consumption soon, probably via the Webmaker list.
- Hanging out ‘Trellbeering’ with the #TeachTheWeb team. It’s a term we’ve invented for an end of the week virtual hangout where we triage Trello tickets while drinking alcohol.
- Responding to invitations to speak at various events. I’m trying to say ‘no’ more and prioritise my time.
- Talking with Cassie McDaniel, Brett Gaylor and Atul Varma about more fully integrating the Web Literacy Map and webmaker.org.
- Reviewing a book (hopefully) soon to be published by MIT Press.
- Discussing potential UK-related Open Badges stuff with Tim Riches.
Next week I’ll be in London for the first part of the week before returning home to do some writing.
