Hello webmakers!

+Karen Smith and I have been working on a Webmaker whitepaper. We've already had some feedback on an earlier version from some of you, but this has been rewritten.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Webmaker/Whitepaper 

Details on how to comment can be found at the above link and we've separated out the feedback into three sections - as you can see in teh screenshot below. :-)

Hi!  I'm Jennie Rose Halperin, and I work at the Mozilla Corporation as a Community Builder.  I got my library degree this year from the University of North Carolina's School of Information and Library Science and I am psyched about open culture, librarianship, teaching and learning the web, and doing a good thing for my community: http://jennierose.makes.org

The Web 25 Year of Action grant deadline has been extended to 9 May, 2014. The call is now open for applications in Spanish, Portuguese, and French.

The #webwewant is offering grants from $1,000 to $5,000 (the majority of funding will go to the Global South). They're looking for imaginative, fun ways to celebrate the Web’s 25th birthday and engage people in creating a shared vision of the web we want. This is a great opportunity to apply for funding to support work you're doing to teach the web with youth, to host a Maker Party, etc …

For more information, visit: http://grants.webwewant.org/

<sigh> Another commentator that doesn't understand how Mozilla works. It's a community - and a diverse one at that.

We're looking for guest presenters for this week's #teachtheweb call!

Want to introduce the community to your programs/organization? Have new teaching resources to share and looking for feedback? Have questions about the Web Literacy Map or how you can teach web skills to your learners? This weekly call is for the Webmaker community to connect, share and learn from one another.

Feel free to add agenda items directly to this week's call etherpad, and hope you'll join us (and invite others too!).

Hey everyone.

It's been a really busy week or two for me, but I'm slowly working on a teaching kit that uses my previous tutorials. I'd really appreciate some pointers/suggestions/etc.

https://fourtonfish.makes.org/thimble/creating-for-the-modern-web

Thanks in advance!

My schedule is not very predictable (I'm a stay at home dad), so I'm not going to promise anything -- but I'll definitely try.

I am red/green color blind, and can often switch colors by accident (as I choose colors from the embedded wheels).

I have to color by code and not the way it appears. Does anyone have a favorite resource of color codes. I do not need too many just your basics.

for folk who are not colourblind these might be useful to help when choosing colour:

Hello Webmakers! Common Sense Media hosts a monthly Appy Hour–it's an online Hangout featuring educators talking about the digital tools they use for learning. They'd like to feature Popcorn Maker in May, so I'm looking for a US-based formal educator (or two) who uses/has used Popcorn Maker in the classroom and is willing to share their experience and help inform other educators about how to use the tool in their classroom. Please shoot me a note if you're interested! lainie at mozillafoundation dot org

Agreed. Have you seen http://www.bentobox.io? I'd love to use that as a jumping-off point to think through what we could do here.

Much potential! :-)

Hi Webmakers! I'm Dannielle Del Rosario, a multi-disciplinary developer for ThoughtWorks, but just overall enthusiast for digital literacy C: I'm really excited and passionate to finding ways to help out with digital literacy around the US, so it's really great to find this community!

Let me know if you guys can think of anything for me to dive right into, but otherwise I'll be happy to poke around the current resources

Hey webmakers, I've created a tutorial to go with a blank version of the 3D presentation I showed you last week: http://mzl.la/1gD7S04

How can I make it better? What needs further explanation? Feedback encouraged! :-D

Hey Webmakers, I wrote this (longer than usual) blog post in response to a post I saw on +John Gruber's Daring Fireball blog. Would love to hear what you think!

Hey all, ever since I first used Thimble I've wanted to use it for presenting with. It must be the teacher in me. ;-)

Finally, thanks to the latest updates from the Product Team and my half-arsed attempt to remix the impress.js presentation framework, I've managed to put something together: http://bit.ly/oppi-mozilla

Feel free to make (much) better!
