They’re here! You can now earn a brand new Mozilla Webmaker Mentor badge to show off your qualification and commitment to teaching the web.
Help others learn digital skills, teach web literacy, and share creative new ways for teaching tech. You can display your Webmaker Mentor badge on your personal web site, share it on social media, and add it to your Open Badges backpack to take it with you across the web.
Meet some of our new badge recipients
We’ve already started issuing the badges to a handful of early recipients — many of whom have been an active part of our Teach the Web open online course. One of those is Jeannie Crowley, the Manager of Digital Media & Learning at Bank Street College of Education, and also a member of the Hive NYC Learning Network:
“I’ve been actively involved in the #teachtheweb online community — mentoring a study group, sharing projects, creating resources, participating on Twitter, attending community calls, and finding new ways to get people actively involved. It’s been awesome!”
Here’s some of the great work Jeannie submitted to earn her badge:
- a Popcorn music video response to the NSA Prism scandal
- sharing educational resources with others
- remixing learning activities
- analyzing participation patterns, aggregating data and visualizing participation in the #teachtheweb course
- Apply for your Webmaker Mentor badge. All the criteria, context and submission form you need are there.
- Meet some of our other mentors. Case studies and stories of our mentors from the real world.
- Check out the new Webmaker.org (coming soon). Launching tomorrow, we’ll have brand new teaching resources and ways for mentors to contribute, remix and localize — stay tuned!
