Mozilla Webmaker MOOC kicking off May 2nd for 9 weeks!

I’m delighted to announce that there’s going to be a Mozilla MOOC! The Massive Open Online Course starts on the May 2nd for 9 weeks with the focus being upon learning how to teach digital literacy and HTML/CSS/JavaScript skills. Happily you don’t have to know anything about the topic(s) before you start. :-)

While I’m not one of the organisers of the Mozilla MOOC I’m excited to be involved as a Super Mentor! Further details (kindly provided by my colleague Laura Hilliger) can be found below:

As part of our non-profit mission, Mozilla believes that web literacy—the understanding of how digital things work—is an essential life skill for the 21st century. We want to empower users of the web to become makers of the web.

So we’re kicking-off a free online course called Teach the Web: a Mozilla Open Online Collaboration, where we’ll explore new ways of teaching digital literacies through making and learning together.

The #teachtheweb course will run from May 2 – June 30. You can participate in weekly guided discussions, tackle hands-on activities, develop and remix teaching resources, and compare notes with a global community of makers, mentors and educators.

Find more details or sign up and get started at http://webmaker.org/teach

Participants will learn how to:

  • teach digital literacies through making, remixing and sharing
  • incorporate openness and online innovation into teaching practices
  • adapt educational resources to meet your learners’ interests and needs
  • receive feedback from peers on your own resources and lessons

We hope you’ll join us!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via Twitter @mozteach or the G+ Webmaker community at mzl.la/gpluswebmaker.

Be sure to sign up and I look forward to learning together!
