Tomorrow night is the prize-giving dinner for the 2011 BETT Awards. Chris has hired his tux and I’m going to sew a button on my best outfit and wear my new Fluevogs.
‘Lifelines’, the digital fiction project Chris Joseph and I created for educational publisher, Rising Stars, has been nominated in the category of Secondary, FE, and Skills Digital Content. The other projects look great. But fingers crossed! It would be great for Rising Stars, and for us, to have a win.
In advance of the award ceremony, there’s been two pieces about my work in the papers of late: an interview in the Independent on Sunday, ‘Brave New World: Writers Will Have to Change Their Attitude if They’re to Catch Up with the Videogames Industry’, and a Comment piece in the Guardian’s Classroom Innovation supplement today, ‘Educators Need to Utilise the Explosion in Digital Writing’.
I’ll be giving a seminar at BETT on Friday.
