This week I’ve been:
- Creating two new grids for Mozilla’s Web Literacy standard work with the community. The first one’s here and the second (updated) one is still just on Flickr at the moment.
- Planning my PELeCON keynote presentation. You have no idea how long it takes to collate, choose and organise animated GIFs.
- Hosting the weekly Web Literacy standard community call. You can catch up here.
- Catching up with people like Laura Hilliger, Tim Riches, Lucy Neale and StJohn Smith.
- Editing the Wikipedia article for Open Badges. Only a bit, though. Must revisit.
- Moderating a Connected Learning TV webinar featuring Liz Lawley and her work around a ‘gaming layer’ for students and academics.
- Travelling to Plymouth by train, plane and automobile (literally) for PELeCON.
- Attending, keynoting and running a workshop at PELeCON. The animated GIFs from my keynote aren’t so animated on Slideshare, so you may want to try this Evernote notebook. Photos are here (when they’ve finished uploading)
Next week I’m in Sweden keynoting and running a workshop at the Swedish equivalent of BETT. Better get planning…
This week I’ve been:
- Attending SXSWedu all week in Austin, Texas. I’ve blogged about that here.
- Presenting at SXSWedu. Slides for the session Kathleen Stokes and I ran on ‘Supporting a Generation of Digital Makers’ can be found on Slideshare.
- Co-ordinating the work around Mozilla’s work with the community around a new, open learning standard for Web Literacy. You can find the recording from this week’s call here.
Next week I’m working from home on Monday and Tuesday and then heading to Chicago on Wednesday for the DML Conference. Excitingly, we’ll be launching v1.0 of the Open Badges Infrastructure! Also, as I’m not speaking there I’m looking forward to the snow subsiding and the green river for St. Patrick’s Day!

TELIC1: The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies from Doug Belshaw on Vimeo.
I was asked to do virtually keynote for Sheffield Hallam University’s TELIC student conference. You can see the result here or embedded above. Slides can be found here (over 10,000 views in 24 hours after being featured on the Slideshare homepage!)
In addition, I presented on Open Badges at the JISC RSC Scotland conference on Friday. It was livestreamed so I’m guessing there’ll be a video recording somewhere. Until then, slides here or embedded below!
