Hi Katherine and Jo

Funky! I like the music.

WRT the project this strikes me as exactly the sort of thing we need to be doing. I have argued that the key skill our students can develop is how to build, maintain, contribute to and get the most from a network. Their network will be their key asset, and so developing digital literacy skills will be a necessary part of this.

Thanks for making this

Hi Martin

Thanks for your comment. I learnt some things and had a lot of fun in the process of creating this slidecast. We are getting involved in some interesting conversations about digital literacy right now, so hopefully there will more to come.

Sadly I missed the conference because life was just too busy round that time, but I will be making time to listen to the Elluminate recordings.
