Those who have been working with me know that this has been the exceptionally busy week that I have been talking about for months now. With the normal end of term rush to finish everything I have also attended the launch of the fantastic Centre for the Study of New Literacies. I heard some brilliant keynote speakers there – Anne Haas Dyson, Julia Davies, Kate Pahl and Angela Thomas.
Last night I spoke in front of parents and children at a local authority event… it was the most challenging talk I have ever done. After initial nerves (and a lot of them) I am told that I calmed down and relaxed!
I’m now on the train to London’s Kings Cross en route to Greenwich for the UKLA International Conference. I’ve really been looking forward to meeting with friends at UKLA and hopefully making many more. For anyone who is at the conference I will be speaking as part of a symposium on Friday afternoon… hope to see you there!
