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