Weeknote 22nd August 2014

I missed this last week… the historian in me wants to bring the documentation up to date.. the pragmatist in me says life moves on so quickly, on with the present…

Where?

London

What?

  • Reporting on the progress of our RCT into Remote Tutoring to the funders, EEF/
  • Planning for a session at the online ‘Disruptive Innovation Festival’. I’m privileged to be leading an interactive session following on from talks by Alan November and Sir Ken Robinson… more details soon.
  • Organising a round table event on STEM skills.
  • Continuing to develop plans for the Nesta Digital Education strategy for the next 12 months, including a new project that is developing.
  • Meeting (albeit virtually) with Maureen from Khan Academy and exploring how our trial of Flipped Learning links with their work.
  • Demoing Edukit, a new platform for matching schools with programmes for social development. I was impressed with the ambition and the implementation of what they are doing.
  • Discussing some exciting research that is developing into class blogging in UK schools.
  • Discussing the UK Digital Skills Task force report and next steps with Maggie Philbin.

Writing

A quiet one this week, with just this update post on the current state of my research projects.

Next week I have a big week of writing planned, some blog posts I’ve been meaning to get out for a while, and proposals for new pieces of work. But first… the bank holiday weekend including a festival and checking out the Notting Hill Carnival…
