This November we are kickstarting a campaign to localize the Offline Icebreakers teaching kit and we need your help! Head over to this website to get started.
Following the success of the campaign to localize the Web Literacy Basics I teaching kit last year, we are excited to continue this effort in our November campaign. This time, however, we are trying something new.
The Offline Icebreakers module has six different activities that help students learn about the web in an interactive way without requiring an internet connection. We hope to have this module localized in 12 languages (and we welcome other languages as well), namely Bengali (বাংলা), Dutch (Nederlands), Filipino (Pilipino), German (Deutsch), Gujarati (ગુજરાતી), Hindi (हिन्दी), Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia), Portuguese (Português), Spanish (Español), French (Français), Swahili (Kiswahili) and Swedish (Svenska), by the end of November.
In this campaign, we want our local Mozillian communities to take charge. You get to choose how you want to localize the activity – as a Github page, a Thimble project or a Google Document. You can choose whatever tool you are comfortable with and work with it to create a localized activity in a format that you think would appeal to your community. You can choose to collaborate with others in your community and engage them in this effort as well.
If you love to teach our curriculum in your community, or are experienced at translating content, or just want to help spread our curriculum, we can use your help. You can find out more information about this campaign and how you can contribute by checking out our website. We value your contribution and enthusiasm, and to show our gratitude we are offering a special reward to the first 20 participants to submit at least three or more fully localized activities.
Thanks in advance for helping us bring important web literacy skills to more communities in more countries around the world. We are incredibly appreciative of your contributions!
