Join me this Thursday for a Connected Learning webinar: An Introduction to ‘Teaching the Web’ and ‘Web Literacy’

This Thursday (15th January 2014) at 5pm UTC* I’m leading a webinar on behalf of Mozilla’s #TeachTheWeb team. The title is An Introduction to ‘Teaching the Web’ and ‘Web Literacy’.  Click through to sign up for event reminders.

The webinar is the first in a series of three our team is running under the banner of Empowering Lifelong Learners by ‘Teaching the Web’.

An Introduction to ‘Teaching the Web’ and ‘Web Literacy’

What is “web literacy” and why should we teach it? How does creating/remixing the web help strengthen learning?

How the Webmaker Community Is Helping Youth Be Creative and Curious

What are “web literacy clubs,” and how are they helping youth develop lifelong learning mindsets?

 Ongoing Learning Opportunities with Mozilla Webmaker

What are some of the easiest ways to get involved in the Webmaker community? Where do you start?


During my webinar I’ll be going through introductory stuff around Webmaker, the Web Literacy Map, and the Webmaker whitepaper. I’m also interested in any questions you’ve got, so please do ask them as comments below! I’ll try and answer as many as possible during the webinar.


* That’s 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET / 10.30 IST / 4am AET

Roundup of some stuff I’ve been involved with recently

The following things didn’t really warrant a blog post in their own right, but I thought they were worth sharing somewhere on this blog.

1. Nesta ‘One Day Digital’ video

I ran a Mozilla Webmaker workshop in Edinburgh on Easter Saturday as part of  Nesta’s One Day Digital series of events. The video they produced afterwards is below and I make a brief appearance at around 1:00. Check out that beard!

2. Connected Learning TV

I’ve appeared on a number of these webinars and the archive is a CPD resource in its own right. This time I was standing in for Howard Rheingold as host. Interesting stuff about Liz Lawley’s attempts to add a ‘gaming layer’ on top of the university curriculum:

3. Open Badges presentations

I presented at SETT, the Swedish equivalent of BETT, last week. My presentation, along with one from PELeCON the week before can be found below. Unfortunately, the animated GIFs are not so animated on Slideshare, so click here if you want to see them in action!
