Mozilla’s Maker Party

Mozilla’s Maker Party has started with a bang! We’re only a few weeks into our 3-month celebration and thousands of people have already gotten together at events around the world — from India to Uganda to France — to help make the Web together.

Are you in? It’s easy. Join an eventmake something and share it with your friends.

The Maker Party is one of my favorite times of the year. In the past month, we’ve seen the Mozilla community rally to help computer science students in India start hacking the Web, teens in rural France use Thimble to remix movie posters and a dedicated community of Web mentors begin to emerge in Uganda.

Maker Party

There’s no end to Maker Party participants’ creativity. People are making websites withThimble, remixing videos with Popcorn Maker, creating fun animated gifs and even blending technology, traditional art techniques and…vegetables! In New York City, youth are producing fantastic projects like CityScenes, an app to help cyclists plan a scenic bike journey around NYC through landmarks like movie scene locations and monuments.

Sound like your idea of fun?! Join an event happening near you or, if you’re more ambitious, invite 5 of your friends over and host an event of your own. We’ve got guides to show you how and lots of projects — remixes, mash-ups, websites — you can all build together.

Whatever you build, make sure to share your work. Tag it with #makerparty and celebrate with other webmakers from around the globe.

The Maker Party runs until September 15 so there’s lots of time to join in. I can’t wait to see what you build!


P.S. — We work to ensure the Maker Party and our tools are free for everyone. Please donate today to help us empower a global community of people learning to code, remix and make the Web together.

Chi è rimasto indietro in #ltis13 può recuperare in #loptis

Con la fine della scuola iniziano a fare capolino “quelli che ora recupero”. Benissimo, il laboratorio #loptis serve anche a questo.

Può essere un buon incipit quello di Fabrizio, dove chiede esplicitamente se c’è qualcuno che vuole procedere in compagnia, ed in altri successivi, per esempio quello dove condivide delle idee interessanti sulla mappa dei partecipanti. Provvedo a informare coloro che mi hanno scritto per email.

Nel frattempo qui si va avanti con un costante e poco appariscente lavoro di ristrutturazione, anche se un po’ rallentato da beghe ordinarie di lavoro.

Si va ristrutturando la barra a destra. È apparsa una pagina di iscrizione che riguarderà i nuovi arrivi, previsti in settembre-ottobre – ne riparleremo. La procedura di iscrizione è comunque già funzionante e può accogliere nuovi esporatori solitari. Tuttavia riguarda coloro che sono stati iscritti nel cMOOC #ltis13, che…

The past tense of open badges

E-Learning Provocateur

Some commentators are heralding open badges as the nemesis of the college degree. I don’t quite see it that way.

It is true they are uneasy bedfellows. As Mark Smithers observes…

“It’s interesting that the reaction to open badges from senior academic managers is often to dismiss them as being child like and akin to collecting a badge for sewing at scouts.”


“I also suspect that traditional higher education providers will resist providing them because they don’t fit in with traditional academic perceptions of achievement and credentialing.”

I wonder if these academics have consulted their own faculties of education?

Of course, open badges and college degrees are not mutually exclusive. If a particular university can overcome its initial prejudice, it will see badges for what they really are: representations of achievement – just like those pieces of paper they dole out at graduation ceremonies.

There is no reason why…
