It is Open Education Week, and to celebrate we are putting out a call to build and curate Open Educational Resources that teach the mechanics, culture and citizenship of the web (“web literacy“).
These open resources will be linked to on webmaker.org and remixed by a global community of educators, technologists and web enthusiasts who want to further web literacy in the world.
Get involved and help spread web literacy in a few simple steps!
Email your web literacy curriculum to:
teachtheweb [at] mozillafoundation [dot] org
Do you have curriculum, a lesson plan or a learning activity that teaches concepts about the web? If so, would you be willing to share it with a growing community of like-minded people in an open education ecosystem?
Importantly, we’re looking for curriculum that don’t only teach web mechanics, but also the culture and citizenship of the web.
Ideal curriculum should be:
- openly licensed, and freely available to be used and remixed by others
- applicable to at least one of the competencies on the Web Literacy Map. (See https://webmaker.org/literacy)
- developed through iteration and testing with learners
What we will do with the curriculum:
- Convert it into a Teaching Kit or Activity using our modular and remixable template
- Feature it as part of a new interactive feature on webmaker.org that highlights the Web Literacy Map
- Co-brand and give full attribution to your work including visual branding, links to your website and additional offerings.
What does some example curriculum look like?
- Complete teaching kits or activities using Webmaker tools or any others. For example, WYNC’s Radio Rookies’ How to Report Your Own Story activity.
- Online courses or tutorials. For example, School of Open by Creative Commons and P2PU.
- Wiki pages, articles, and other curriculum summaries. For example, Surveillance Self-Defense by the EFF.
