In the run-up to me starting full time with the Mozilla Foundation I’ve been continuing my thinking on web literacies.
I’m thinking out loud here.
Things that have changed since the last version:
- Move from ‘web literacy’ to ‘web literacies’
- Themes (exploring, connecting, building, protecting) organised hierarchically
- Removal of ‘calling APIs’, ‘manipulating data’ and so on
- Update: The colours no longer mean anything (thanks @PatParslow!)
I realise that the last of these could be contentious. The reason I’ve removed these more technical aspects has nothing to do with whether I think they’re important. Of course they are.
It’s just that if you start from the endpoint of describing someone who’s ‘web literate’ I think it’s entirely possible not to be able to ‘call an API’ yet still be web literate.
What do you think?
I’d really appreciate some feedback – this is still very early work!
