Teaching the world digital literacy and webmaking
We’re in the early stages of building a Mozilla Webmaker program for educators called Hacktivate Learning. In 2013, Mozilla will be engaging people who are dedicated to teaching and learning with the web. If you are motivated to teach something to others or help people learn, you are an educator.  We’re creating a big tent for parents, librarians, engineers, after-school coordinators, artists, young people and teachers of all stripes and disciplines, from all over the world.  We are asking educators who are motivated by the concept of the “4th R”, web literacies, an open ethos, and the Webmaker mission, to help further conceptualize and design how we will Hacktivate Learning!

In an amazing feat of webmaker collaborations, educators and youth from Global Action Project partnered with Emma Irwin @sunnydeveloper and others to bring their analog media history timeline into the digital age using Thimble AND Popcorn! 

This prototype highlights significant events in history as they pertain to personal experiences and media. It’s part of a bigger effort to engage youth in NYC around charting the media’s role in political, economic, and social movements, a project for which they recently received funding from the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in the New York Community Trust.

Here’s the team that made it happen:

And here’s more from Emma on how they approached their challenge.

Meredith Summs from MOUSE (Hive NYC member) collaborated with other educators, designers and programmers in an effort to start creating artifacts that help teach youth web basics. “They just posted something online. But what actually just happened?” They’re looking to collect and build resources that provide more context around teaching how to use webmaker tools. 

Here’s one activity they created on the spot around the concept of search engine optimization!
