In January of this year I was invited by the University of Greenwich to give an Open Lecture. Greenwich is an historic place, with plenty of interest for those who wish to explore the past, but it is also quite a forward looking institute, as the series of recent Open Lectures proves. My own presentation, as I documented in a recent post, was on digital readiness - the skills, competencies, capabilities and literacies required for those who are in education and wish to make sense of technology. It's complex, multi-layered and progressive, because as technology advances and our views and uses of it develop, so new issues and challenges continually emerge. I try to address some of those in this presentation, and it would be good to continue a dialogue with other learning professionals around these themes.
The video link is below, the talk is about 40 minutes including discussion, and I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has views on this subject. I would particularly be interested in understanding your views on what skills, competencies and capabilities you think are essential for those studying and teaching in all sectors of education and training.
