A Billion Acts Proposal

I think visually, so I like to make maps and models and stuff to help me think through complicated ideas. Before the break I decided to make a brief presentation to help explain an interactive concept for/with Greenpeace. I wanted to play a little with animation, and stumbled upon HTML5Maker. I started building, ignoring past experience with WYSIWYGs. It’s a… Read more →

What’s next for Laura?

TL;DR My last day at Mozilla already happened, but I’m still me. I bring together disparate things to foster learning, spread openness and design for participation. I’m a creative generalist who likes to make stuff, and I’m open to exploring opportunities. About 5.5 years ago I took a broken dream to the first Mozilla Festival (at the time it was… Read more →

Collapsing Open Leadership Strands

Missing context? Catch up with recent posts tagged with “Methods & Theories”. A couple weeks ago, in the Open Web Leadership call we talked about the last iteration of the Open Leadership Map (OLM) (notice: this call has been changed! New pad + details here). One of the things that we discussed was the idea that theory and practice are… Read more →

Open Web Leadership

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been talking about an organizing structure for future (and current) Teach Like Mozilla content and curriculum. This stream of curriculum is aimed at helping leaders gain the competencies and skills needed for teaching, organizing and sustaining learning for the web. We’ve been short-handing this work “Open Fluency” after I wrote a post about… Read more →

Producing Teach Like Mozilla in the Open (with YOU!)

After fruitful conversations around open fluency and making a commitment (next call April 30th) to think about what that means, while in parallel producing leadership and development content for Teach Like Mozilla, we’ve made some decisions about what is most useful to the overall Mozilla Learning strategy right now. I’m happy to know that once “right now” is over, there’s… Read more →

Open Fluency

I’ve been thinking about lenses on the Web Literacy Map again. Specifically the “Leadership” component of what we do at Mozilla. In his post, Mark called this piece fuzzy, but I think it will become clearer as we define what “leadership” in the context of Mozilla means, and how we can offer professional development that brings people closer to that… Read more →

On the Archive

Yesterday I got to hangout with the #DMLCommons folks in the blog garage (complete with tools) to talk about our views on blogging. In that conversation, we talked a little bit about control and how driving your own online space, and caring for your online presence is so important to your career (and life) pathway. I mentioned (a few times)… Read more →

“Teach Like Mozilla” Development

Creating a catalog of curriculum & educational programming for a project as diverse as Mozilla isn’t exactly easy. We use a variety of pedagogies, we have different target audiences, we are starting from different places. There are semantics, politics, and relationships we have to consider when organizing learning materials and programming. And, a little secret, everyone organizes information a little… Read more →
