ARCHIVE: 2013 Story

  • Launch an international campaign rallying around "making as learning"
  • Mobilize local communities and network them globally
  • Build platforms and social APIs for people to gather and teach skills for a digital age

2013 Goals for the Mentor Community

  • 3.0 Grow a global community of mentors with a maker attitude
  • 3.1 Offer compelling on-ramps for mentors to participate in webmaking
  • 3.2 Merge Hive + Code Party to create a global mentor community w/ local roots
  • 3.3 Make it easier to find local mentors, events, and learning resources online
  • 3.4 Create more + better mentor resources: step by step guides for teaching that are hackable
  • 3.5 Surface localization opportunities. Tools and starter content should all eventually be translatable for different communities.

What success looks like

  • Webmaker.org/mentor is a destination for mentors. It includes community stories, remixable resources, events, and a marketplace for needs and offerings.
  • Remixable hacktivity kits released. Mentors are regularly ripping, remixing, and reposting content to Webmaker.org.
  • "Making as learning" narrative is widely known and has momentum
  • Participation metrics for campaign(s) are hit
  • Hive "Cookbook" used to grow & on-ramp new learning networks. 3+ new cities at a Hive Learning Network stage.
  • An active webmaker mentoring program with ReMo
  • 30+ campaign events as feeder events to MozFest
  • A kick-ass Mozfest that wraps with clear community leaders who own part of Webmaker and are set for 2014
