Yesterday I arrived in London, where the sun is shining ( yay!) and where I will spend the upcoming week. It’s going to be a real #mozlib week indeed:
At Internet Librarian International – the annual European meeting point for digitally inclined library professional – I will give a short presentation about ICT training in public libraries and how Mozilla tools and connected learning principles can boost digital literacies (here’s a short article on the subject that I wrote recently: Connected learning: boosting ICT training in public librarie
I so much like the fact that I will be part of a session named Transformational Teaching, since that’s really my ambition: to contribute to a deep transformation of the very idea of ICT training in libraries, and make room for a move forward towards the formation of a digital literacies strategy that spans over all activities in libraries. If you will be attending the conference I would be psyched to see you there. It’s on Wednesday 22 of October and I’m looking forward to a lot of idea exchange with you and other fellow digital library geeks from around the globe
At #ILI2014 I’m also happy to be part of the X Track, where I will be showcasing hackerspace related stuff together with two very productive European bibliomakers: Jeroen from Frysklab and Rasmus from Copenhagen FabLab. Can’t wait to meetup and see what we can make! As far as I am concerned I’ll bring a set of ‘maker boxes’….
Finally, at the end of the week I’ll be attending the annual Mozilla Festival, where I will try to find a balanced focus on just a FEW things but I will probably fail – there is so much happening!. Well, it most certainly will be some kind of sallad with the following tasty ingredients: Hive learning Networks, Digital Literacy, Open Badges, Digital Art and the Mobile Web. If you’re attending mozfest and want to meetup, don’t hesitate to give me a ping. Looking forward to seeing you!
