- Added ‘issues’ to improve the Web Literacy Map from last week’s call etherpad to GitHub.

I wasn’t at BETT this week. It’s a great place to meet people I haven’t seen for a while and last year I even gave a couple of presentations and a masterclass. However, this time around, my son’s birthday and party gave me a convenient excuse to miss it.
Next week I’m working from home as usual. In fact, I don’t think I’m away again until our family holiday to Dubai in February half-term!
