Training People to Teach the Web
- The Webmaker Training program teaches people how how to teach the web. It provides professional development for anyone who wants to teach web literacy, digital skills, and creative approaches to the web
- Webmaker Training shows how Webmaker tools can empower creativity and learning, and how a local community can plug in to a global movement.
- Everything is modular: the platform, the content, the individual prompts within the content itself. The agendas for the live trainings are built to be remixable. It's a blended learning program designed to scale.</strong>
- Online and offline components can be independent or dependent on one another.
- All of this is to ensure that each learner can choose the areas of the Webmaker world that are most relevant to how they would like to contribute.
We'll soft launch the Webmaker Training program (aka Teach the Web). By April 1st we will:
Set up v.01 of the new Webmaker Training platform, designed to look and feel like Webmaker.org and include the remixability that makes us strong.
Work with P2PU to perform a content review of the Teach the Web content. We'll make the content more modular, create examples and write new modules (specifically for inside the engagement module). We will also review and update existing make prompts (especially in the Building module, which is based on the exemplary Remix Teaching Kit and is the module in which learners learn to build teaching kits and supporting resources).
