Last week I was in Dubai on holiday with my family thanks to the generosity of my Dad. Here’s a couple of photos from that trip. Scroll down for this week’s updates!
This (four-day) work week I’ve been:
- Catching up with emails and notes from team meetings.
- Creating questionnaires for the new Web Literacy Basics I modules.
- Moving GitHub tickets relating to the Webmaker Curriculum to a new repository.
- Putting together agenda and updating spreadsheet for this week’s Web Literacy Map community call.
- Reviewing Stacy Martin’s What’s Wrong With Your Password? teaching kit.
- Adding my thoughts to the design process for the upcoming Web Literacy page on teach.webmaker.org.
- Responding to Dave Crusoe’s post about the importance of webmaking in the #TeachTheWeb discussion forum.
- Editing the audio and writing an overview of this weeks’ Web Literacy Map community call.
- Filing GitHub issues (and a meta issue) for all of the Web Literacy Map v1.5 competencies. This is so we can work asynchronously on the skills underpinning those competencies.
- Travelling to London for a meeting with Michelle. This turned into a five-hour ordeal after some of the tracks broke in front of the train. Thankfully, I’d already made the decision to stay over until Saturday!
- Discussing potential involvement in a Future Classrooms event in Armagh later this month.
- Confirming my keynote and workshop for London College of Fashion‘s annual conference at the end of March.
- Thinking through the launch website to replace the current placeholder. Sign up to this low-volume email list for updates!
- Planning my next articles for Educating Modern Learners and DMLcentral.
- Curating photos from our Dubai trip, which I’ll make into an iPhoto book (as we do for all of our family holidays!)
- Attending the London Festival of Education on Saturday. It was great to catch up with Dai Barnes, Tim Riches, Jim Knight, and Oliver Quinlan. It was also great to meet Matt Rogers and surprise Tom Bennett. Other than that I went to a session featuring George The Poet, one on mindfulness in education, and DigitalMe‘s workshop on Open Badges.
- Delighted at receiving the UK Scouting badges below. Read more on the Flickr page for this photo.
Next week I’ll be at home working more on the Learning Pathways whitepaper and Web Literacy Map v1.5. I’ll also be helping out with the Clubs curriculum work where necessary.
