Last week was Open Education Week. As part of it, I helped moderate an online discussion on behalf of Mozilla about Open Education and the Open Web.
We provided a new prompt every day in our Webmaker Google+ community and asked for responses via comments, blog posts, or using Mozilla’s Webmaker tools.
You can find the prompts below:
Day 1: http://goo.gl/2cNlCC
Day 2: http://goo.gl/MzpY5D
Day 3: http://goo.gl/yKsXX6
Day 4: http://goo.gl/jTEw8Y
Day 5: http://goo.gl/mgSIse
There were some great contributions, but I’d like to highlight the following in particular:
- Greg McVerry’s blog post about the centrality of community in Open Education.
- Laura Hilliger’s definition of an Open Educational Ecosystem (OEE).
- Julia Vallera’s use of Thimble to share her definition of ‘Open Education’. The Google+ thread contained many others!
- John Johnston’s anti-readability make.
- Robert Drummond’s description of the Web Literacy Map as ” a set of performance indicators to measure our understanding of the web against.”
The Webmaker Google+ community is now over 3,000-strong and a great place to get involved in Mozilla’s role in promoting open, innovation and opportunity on the web.
In addition, if you have any curriculum that teaches web literacy, we’d love you to share it. We want to use the power of Open Education and the Open Web to make the world more web literate.
Will you join us?
