Ada Lovelace Day Curriculum Design Challenge

Ada Lovelace Day Curriculum Design Challenge

Educators explore interactive ways to teach web literacyEducators in NYC explore interactive ways to teach web literacy with Mozilla Learning Network
In this workshop, we'll test out a strategy for rapid, collaborative creation of open educational resources and learning experiences. We'll start by sharing a brief history about Mozilla's work in open source education projects (MakerParty, Mozilla Clubs, Science Lab Study Groups, Curriculum Workshops, and Sprints), how they were developed and how they can be adapted. Then we will launch into a hands-on, fast paced curriculum jam. Using raw content provided by session facilitators as a starting point, plus a set of inspiring constraints and a rapid ideation process, participants will work in small groups to draft learning experiences for a range of age groups, settings, and formats. The result will be a collection of learning experiences to encourage and celebrate the work of women in science, technology, engineering and math, just in time for Ada Lovelace Day on October 11. In addition to creating curriculum, participants will reflect on and help refine this new collaborative creation strategy. Outcomes from the workshop will be free, available and shared with Mozilla's global community and beyond.  Participants will be able to fork, remix or persistently access the STEM materials for their own educational projects. This session is for everyone, from beginner to experienced educators, administrators and designers.
