Weeknote 24/2020

This week I’ve enjoyed getting stuck into work funded by the Social Mobility Commission and Catalyst. Our co-op, along with Erica Neve and Peram Parasmand has started to help UpRising and nine other charities on their digital transformation journeys. I sent out a digital skills/confidence survey early in the week and then have been analysing the results.

I’ve also enjoyed the work that I’ve done on the Greenpeace Planet 4 project, and talking to various people about ways we might be able to help them. Do get in touch if we can help, as I’ll have more capacity from the week beginning 22nd June.

On the Moodle front, this past week can be summed up by me, as outgoing Product Manager, publishing a post to the MoodleNet blog and an hour later it being taken down. Thankfully, there’s a snapshot of it on I’m still not sure what the problem is with any of the text, but I guess a narrative is being constructed and this doesn’t fit it. See my last weeknote for context.

Yesterday, I managed to put together a link roundup this week for Thought Shrapnel entitled Saturday soundings. It’s discombobulating trying to even keep up with everything that’s going on in the world, never mind trying to make sense of it. However, I have found that Comments on the Society of the Spectacle helpful in that regard. Chances are I’ll write more about that soon.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch by email, chat apps, and social networks. I’m fine, thanks. Really. I mean, if I’m honest, I could do without the stress-induced migraines, but they’re caused by two years of micro-aggressions that will be a thing of the past after June 19th.
