The Query function is the shortcut to mastering Google Sheets. Instead of mixing up a bunch of spreadsheet formulas to get something done, you can get away with writing one Query. If you're working with data in any capacity - even if it's just to produce a monthly report - you'll want to know how to run Queries. This course teaches Querying interactively, by working through a sample analysis of Twitter data in Google Sheets.

I have watched Ben Collins’ webinars in the past, they are always well thought out and a great introduction to his longer courses. He has also written an introductory post.

Equity Unbound is an emergent, collaborative curriculum which aims to create equity-focused, open, connected, intercultural learning experiences across classes, countries and contexts. Equity Unbound was initiated by Maha Bali @bali_maha (American University in Cairo, Egypt), Catherine Cronin @catherinecronin (National University of Ireland, Galway), and Mia Zamora @MiaZamoraPhD (Kean University, NJ, USA) for use in their courses this term (September-December 2018), but it is open to all. Equity Unbound is for learners and/or educators at all levels (e.g. undergraduate, postgraduate, professional development) who are interested in exploring digital literacies with an equity and intercultural learning focus, in an open and connected learning environment. Our motto is: โ€œThe only way to make borders meaningless is to keep insisting on crossing them.โ€ (Lina Mounzer) Participants will collaborate in a series of open online activities including: collaborative annotation using open-source, social network conversations and live studio visits, a Wikipedia edit-a-thon, blogging, collaborative multimedia making, and creating their own new learning activities (inspired by the DS106 assignment bank). Activities will seek to develop critical digital literacies and intercultural collaboration while encouraging questions of equity issues such as equity in web representation, digital colonialism, safety and security risks on the web, and how these differ across contexts.
Feels like a continuation of the Engagement in a Time of Polarisation MOOC earlier this year. Interested, but will have to see.

Too often we speak of a decentralized web as if it requires the latest technology. Yet really people must make up an #Indieweb. We do not need new apps or the latest blockchain-schmockchain tool. People only need a blog and a bit of htmlโ€ฆand other people. A web where folks control their data, shap...
As both Tuesday and Wednesday will be occurring around 5:00 in the morning, I do not think that I will catch these sessions live, but I will certainly watch them afterwards.

As a side note, I really love the energy that Greg McVerry is bringing to the IndieWeb community.

The eighth annual gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, from graphic artists, to designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, actively work on creating for their own personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
I won’t be there in person, but I am sure I will catch up on the content produced as I have before. I therefore bought a ticket in principle.
