Maker Party

[web site link]

  • Maker Party 2014
  • Dates: July 15 - Sept 15, 2014
  • Objective: Maker Party is Mozilla's campaign to teach the web and we're working with a bunch of partners to help teach web literacy (which isn't just about code but learning the web). Web literacy is the mechanics, culture and citizenship of the web (our map is how you understand the systematic for those things) and Maker Party is the campaign to get you doing those things.
  • Engagement ladder: Drive people who participate in campaign and move them into contributors by creating a teaching kit, add content to Webmaker and running events
  • Why do we do this: Get people in front of our products/resources, get them interested in what we're doing and learn more about how to get involved
