Teach The Web Talks


What are they?

"How To"
Teach The Web Talks are monthly webinars broadcast by the Mozilla foundation as part of the Webmaker educational initiative.

Join us as we sit down with a community expert to discuss all things related to education and the web. Each talk will last for approximately one hour with group participation.

Standard call agenda:

  • 10 mins - Welcomes and introductions
  • 20 mins - Discussion with speaker
  • 15 mins - Q&A period with speaker
  • 5-10 mins - Additional business and wrap-up

How to get involved

These calls are open to everyone and we encourage you to join in on the discussion, ask questions or advice and come together to learn and share ideas about education and the web.

Step 1 - Send Us Your Questions

Send us your questions for the speaker before and during the talks on Twitter using the hashtag #TeachTheWeb and on our Discourse thread. We will create a new Discourse Thread per talk and the correct thread to use will be highlighted in our emails. We will be monitoring both channels before and during the call and will do our best to get as many questions answered as possible!

Step 2 - Watch the Webinar

Watch or join the call live by clicking on the speaker image or following the Google Hangout link in the banner. We encourage everyone in the hangout to unmute, say hi and ask your questions directly to the speaker but you can also choose to mute your screen and your microphone on the small tool bar at the top of the screen. If you are a local cafe or school that has alot of background noise it might be advisable to mute your microphone until you want to say hi or ask a question.
