This week I’ve been:
- Updating Thought Shrapnel, my blog and weekly newsletter of the same name. You can subscribe there via a variety of methods. You’ll like it.
- Meeting with the local Scouts Executive Committe. I’m Secretary, so I introduced them to Google Docs and Calendar, and showed them the new (basic, but functional and fast) website.
- Continuing work around Project MoodleNet. I spoke with Verena Roberts, Pivotal Labs, wrote a couple of posts on the project blog, started the risk register, did some whiteboarding with Martin Dougiamas, Ryan Wyllie, and Marina Glancy, and presented about the project on the all-hands call.
- Agreeing to fly to Perth for a Moodle Team Leads work week next month the week before I’m in Washington DC for a consultancy gig. Jetlagged Doug will be jetlagged.
- Spending Thursday and Friday in London with my We Are Open Co-op colleagues at Bryan Mathers’ house. We also held a meetup at a pub near London Bridge, where it was great to catch up with Jade Morley, Jamie Allen, Josie Fraser, Maren Deepwell, and Oliver Quinlan.
- Principles underpinning Project MoodleNet: 5. ‘Transparent’ (Project MoodleNet blog, 17th January 2018)
- Principles underpinning Project MoodleNet: 4. ‘Ethical’ (Project MoodleNet blog, 16th January 2018)
- On the difference between people-centric and resource-centric social networks (Open Educational Thinkering, 15th January 2018)
Next week I’m working from home from Monday to Thursday, then I’ll be at the Bett Show in London on Friday.
