In this webinar, Laura Hilliger and Chris Lawrence of the Mozilla Foundation explore Webmaker tools for digital authorship and remix. Learn how to use tools like Thimble, Popcorn, and Web X-Ray Goggles to create open and shareable “teaching kits” that combine effective writing pedagogies with deeply engaging free and open digital production on the Web. Learn how you can become part of the supremely supportive #teachtheweb community.

[Oct 15 2013, 4:24 PM] MozTeach: bye Chad
[Oct 15 2013, 4:24 PM] edinnovator: I love the idea that tools are the way to learn, the platform and the dissemination. And this sentence from Chris: “Practitioners become makers in adding to that resource set” So powerful.
[Oct 15 2013, 4:24 PM] edinnovator: Bye Chad!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:26 PM] professorsv: Are there existing student friendly guides to using the tools in Mozilla?
[Oct 15 2013, 4:27 PM] MozTeach: hive nyc blog http://explorecreateshare.org/
[Oct 15 2013, 4:27 PM] edinnovator: @professorsv We at NWP have created a few teaching kits meant for youth
[Oct 15 2013, 4:27 PM] edinnovator: I’ll gather a few links and post here.
[Oct 15 2013, 4:28 PM] professorsv: Thank you!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:28 PM] MozTeach: @professorsv we take a project based approach, so there are instructions embedded in the tools for instruction
[Oct 15 2013, 4:28 PM] MozTeach: but yes
[Oct 15 2013, 4:28 PM] edinnovator: And, yes, like @mozteach says, our kits have tool instructions embedded in the content creation
[Oct 15 2013, 4:29 PM] MozTeach: X-Ray Goggles teaching kit (remixable!) https://mozteach.makes.org/thimble/xray-goggles-teaching-kit
[Oct 15 2013, 4:29 PM] edinnovator: Here’s the webmaker teaching kits site: https://webmaker.org/en-US/teach
[Oct 15 2013, 4:29 PM] edinnovator: @professorsv Here’s one called “Coding with the NY Times” https://nwp.makes.org/thimble/coding-with-the-new-york-times
[Oct 15 2013, 4:30 PM] MozTeach: Our thinking is that 1) a project that motivates to learn 2) embedded instructions and 3) Kits for educators to shape to their/students needs
[Oct 15 2013, 4:30 PM] professorsv: Thank you!! These are great resources to have!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:32 PM] MozTeach: also will have “live help” in webmaker soon that allow real-time mentoring AND working with the HOMAGO Geek-Outs for webmaking “knitting circles”
[Oct 15 2013, 4:33 PM] professorsv: Oh, so cool.

[Oct 15 2013, 4:36 PM] MozTeach: WNYC Radio Rookies, you may have heard some of their work on Morning Edition and All Things Considered
[Oct 15 2013, 4:37 PM] MozTeach: They imported an existing radio segment they produced and then used Popcorn Maker to make a webby multimedia version
[Oct 15 2013, 4:38 PM] edinnovator: This popcorn piece by Radio Rookies is such a powerful example of multimedia development by youth for purposes of civic engagement.
[Oct 15 2013, 4:39 PM] Christina: Recently we did a story book remix where we used storybooks and rewrote/remade them …
[Oct 15 2013, 4:39 PM] Christina: .. and then, after that, we looked at webmaker.org and played with remwriting/remaking with Popcorn and Thimble.
[Oct 15 2013, 4:40 PM] Christina: It went really well as a set of activities with a group of educators. Took a couple hours but lots o’ fun!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:41 PM] edinnovator: I was lucky enough to attend Mozfest last year and it was one of the most creative and productive conferences I’ve ever attended. I loved the focus on making and learning in community.
[Oct 15 2013, 4:41 PM] jenwoollven: Great idea, Chris. When I did digital storytelling last year some of my students used popcorn
[Oct 15 2013, 4:41 PM] edinnovator: @Christina will be there this year!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:42 PM] edinnovator: Wondering, @Christina, if you want to chat about some of the work you’ll be engaged in with this year at Mozfest.

[Oct 15 2013, 4:51 PM] Christina: sure!
[Oct 15 2013, 4:52 PM] Christina: Why don’t I just share a few things from Digital is …
