Next week I am off on a trip to Vancouver to the Open Education conference, and I am presenting a small paper on Personalization and Contextualization of resources as often being a problem in their further use.
After that I am taking part in the Future of Learning in a Networked World event. Yesterday I discovered we would be in Seattle at the same time as Gnomedex and I am just wondering about whether to make an effort to attend this. It is a little outside my usual activities but it looks like quite a remarkable gathering.
7-11th August: interviews, cycling, Simon Fraser University, University of Britich Columbia
15-20th visits to sum sustainability education inititives
21-22nd, Seattle, then home. Maybe Gnomedex.
TYPE 1 “Oh, I hear you are going away, enjoy yourself . . (followed by random comments like Vancouver is great, Good conference, coffee when you get back, keep in touch, stay well etc etc)”
TYPE 2 “Oh I hear you are going away, I’ve been meaning to ask you to do this, can you do it now or before you go away? Will you be on e-mail? Who do I go to for problems?”
“This little job won’t take too long” (We have a saying “Yeah Right”)
And as I said elsewhere. I’m interested in particular to meet up with Educational Designers.
