I'm leading a session with +Ian O'Byrne  tomorrow about Mozilla's Webmaker work. Focusing in particular on the Web Literacy Map and the Webmaker whitepaper.

Join us if you can!
 
(You can either watch & chat LIVE here on Google Plus, or watch at  http://bit.ly/1Ilf4xg and chat on Twitter using the #TeachTheWeb hashtag)

What is "web literacy" and why should we teach it? How does creating/remixing the web help strengthen learning?

On Thursday, January 15 from 9-10am PT (12-1pm ET), come be part of this online introduction to the philosophy behind +Mozilla Webmakers. Our guest speakers will gladly address your questions via the Hangout "Q&A" feature or #TeachTheWeb on Twitter.

This webinar is part of a January 2015 series titled "Empowering Lifelong Learners by 'Teaching the Web' with Mozilla Webmaker". Check out all the details at http://bit.ly/teachingtheweb
