2020 – My year in blog posts, on radio and in drawings

I have already written an EdTech end of year post, 2020 #altc – The year forged in fire, so this one is looking back at things I have blogged about this year… in around 30 posts this year.

This year, I have blogged less about the conferences I have contributed to and the talks I have given, but fortunately for most of them there are slides or recordings available:

Selected talks from 2020


Virtual Teams blog posts

I have also continued to blog together with my colleague Martin Hawksey about all things leading a virtual team. Given that this was the year of the great migration to home working, this series has been more relevant than ever before and I am glad that we were able to keep blogging through the ups and downs of 2020.

2020 – pandemic posts

2020 – regular posts

  • Virtual Teams: moving parts – This month we start our third year as a virtual team and we talk about the ups and downs of moving house as home workers, how to give yourself a break during times of upheaval and supporting each other.
  • Virtual Teams: The heartbeat of a virtual team – This month we are talking about Slack, scheduling team meetings, and how our use of technology and different tools affect the rhythm of our work as a virtual team. 

This is the final blog post I wrote for our series this year:


Blogging as the Neon Flaneuse

At the start of the year, in the early days of January, I started a creative project to get drawing and thinking more, blogging in a non-work capacity about all kinds of things: you can have a read here.

On the #ds106radio airwaves

Not much blogging, but I could be found on DS106 Radio most Sunday evenings this year alongside friends from Canada, Tannis and Anne-Marie, playing tunes and chatting about edtech, lockdown living and femedtech.

It’s been great to connect with people all across the world via online radio and I am super grateful that I have been able to discover and connect with this community during 2020.
