This week I’ve been:
- Contributing to the OEPS Forum launch in Edinburgh on Monday. They kindly allowed me to talk about the Web Literacy Map. I wrote the event up here.
- Updating the Badge Alliance wiki page for the Digital & Web Literacies working group I co-chair.
- Finishing off the above working group’s deliverable – a document containing things to consider when constructing a badged pathway around the Web Literacy Map‘s Privacy competency. I wrote about it here.
- Booking my travel to/from MozFest (London, next week) the Safer Internet Forum (Brussels, November), and the Mozilla ‘coincidental’ workweek (Portland, Oregon, December).
- Setting up the series of seven Web Literacy Map v2.0 community calls, starting next Monday. I wrote about them here.
- Pulling out and surfacing some of the interesting feedback we’ve received so far from the Web Literacy Map v2.0 community survey. I wrote about that here.
- Co-ordinating the translation of the Web Literacy Map v2.0 survey into other languages. I then created the surveys for translated and reviewed languages. Currently, we’re double-checking hi_IN (Hindi), es_CL (Spanish), ml (Malalayam) and fr (French). On Monday I’ll write a post for the Webmaker blog about the whole process so far and how to get involved.
- Creating a landing page for most of the contribution and web literacy badges your can earn through Webmaker. You can access that here.
- Attending the TeachMeet & Greet event on Wednesday night before the Digitally Confident conference. I had too much on for MozFest to attend the latter, but the TeachMeet was a great opportunity to meet up with people I don’t see often enough – like Graham Brown-Martin, Jim Knight, Zoe Ross, José Picardo and Simon Finch. I followed that up on Friday with an fantastic 2½ hour conversation with Dai Barnes, my former co-host for EdTechRoundUp.
- Meeting with Adam Lofting and Simon Knight to plan our MozFest session: Learning Analytics for good in the age of Big Data. I also met with Karen Smith to discuss what we’re doing in our session on Prototypes and Pathways for Web Literacy.
Next week I’ll be working from home on Monday and Tuesday, getting things ready for the Mozilla Festival. Then I’ll be travelling down to London on Wednesday to meet my colleagues. MozFest itself starts on Friday evening and runs until Sunday afternoon.
Post-MozFest, I’m taking a few days off as it’s my children’s half-term (and I’ll be knackered). I’ll not be writing any weeknotes in November and December as I’ll be on #BelshawBlackOps14.
