originally posted on Medium The first time I touched Jekyll was in 2013 when I was working at Mozilla. At the time, the School of Webcraft, a joint effort between P2PU and Mozilla had lost it’s project lead, and I (with some collaborators) were sent in to revive the project. What was then called the […]continue reading Help me Jekyll!
Several years back while I was working at Mozilla, I worked on a program to teach youth how to conceptualize immersive stories. At the time, we called these sorts of stories “Web Native Films”. I developed a curriculum that educators all over the world could use. It was called Storycamp. I was pleased to use […]continue reading Let’s chat about Immersive Storytelling
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 […]continue reading What’s next for Laura?
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 […]continue reading Collapsing Open Leadership Strands
Most of this post will be much easier to understand if you view Mark’s recent talk at the Next Billion in London, skim or reread Mark’s posts, and the Wiki. Thoughts on messaging One thing that strikes me is the balance b/w inclusivity and having an opinion. To me, it feels off-kilter for the long-term […]continue reading Mozilla Academy Thoughts
Here’s another stab at trying to nail down the competencies and topics leaders in the open community need to have and an organizing structure for Teach Like Mozilla. I’ve worked in the initial suggestions from the community, and made quite a few new changes as I was sorting and organizing content from across Mozilla Learning […]continue reading Iterating organizing structures
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 […]continue reading Open Web Leadership
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 […]continue reading Open Fluency
Ever since version 1 of the Web Literacy Map came out, I’ve been waiting to see people take it and adjust it or interpret it for specific educational endeavors that are outside the wheelhouse of “teach the web”. As I’ve said before, I think the web can be embedded into anything, and I want to […]continue reading Web Literacy Lensing: Identity
I’m quite pleased to point you to a new online learning experience being put together by a group of amazing educators from the Connected Learning community. Starting September 15th we’re going to be talking about openness and blended learning in a 12 week course that aims to help people run their own connected courses. It’s […]continue reading Connected Courses
