The Mozilla Malaysia community is holding a Maker Party in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend. Titled “Hive Malaysia : Teach The Web Kuala Lumpur”, it is aimed at providing educators with the skills needed to teach web literacy. All this is part of the Mozilla road map to increasing web participation and showing people what it means to be a citizen of the internet.
This event will be held for two-days beginning 30 August (this Saturday), with spots limited to the first 50 people to sign up. Attendees will hopefully leave the workshop with an understanding of how the Mozilla Webmaker tools work, and be able to use it to teach the core compentencies from the Web Literacy Map. This weekend will mainly be focused on HTML5.
Maker Party is a global initiative by Mozilla to teach people about participating on the web through community run programmes. It aims to unite educators, organisations, and individuals in a concentrated effort to expand internet participation beyond simply teaching people to code.
The KL edition of the Maker Party is being held in collaboration of Hive Learning Network Malaysia; who are a network of organisations and individuals who want to offer learning opportunities outside the classroom.
