    1. A good educational system should have three purposes: it should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives; empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them; and, finally, furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known.

      I think this sums up the goals of Teach Like Mozilla and the #mozacademy

    1. The web can improve my life

      I take slight issue here. The Web can improve my life can happen with the social elements of basic use.

    1. My argument: the web is at an open vs. closed crossroads, and helping people build know-how and agency is key if we want to take the open path.

      We also need to build the know-who. In fact we are the know-who, and those who know more than us in our networks.

    2. aking and learning tools in Firefox (MakerFox)

      Go Team Tiger. Excited to see what comes out of this.

    3. There is also a piece that includes ‘leadership’ — a commitment and skill level that has you teaching, helping, guiding or inspiring others.

      This is critical. We do not speak enough to the role leadership plays in classrooms centered on agency and choice.

    4. Literacy: use the web and create basic things Skill: know how that gets you a better job / makes your life better

      These two levels seem quite similar.

    5. This is important both for motivation and for actually having the impact on ‘what people know’ that we’re aiming for.

      This is where human capital and social capital are key. You need an audience to make real shit for and help you care about excellence

    6. aspire to and feedback loops t

      Reminds me of Gee's Cycle of Reflective Inquiry

    7. ‘open source learning’ (my term) or ‘creative learning’ (Mitch Resnick’s term, which is probably better :)).

      iterative learning? networked learning, connected learning?

    8. Mozilla’s web literacy map

      I am really excited where we landed with Version 1.5. I think we built in the values @msurman discussed.

    9. Mozilla Academy? Mozilla University? Something else?

      Webmaker Academy brought to you by Mozilla Learning, which fits nicely with Hive brought to you by Mozilla Learning, insert anything brought to you by Mozilla Learning

    10. using our product and marketing

      I know that the Mozilla Learning efforts are tightly entertwined with the product expansion, especially in developing nations, but this does raise a few eyebrows.

    11. presupposes we want to engage primarily

      I think the target audience is people who want to #teachtheweb let them do the groundwork of finding the folks who want to learn.

    12. common approach and brand for all our learning efforts: something like Mozilla University or Mozilla Academy.

      I liked the webmaker brand, sad to see it being used for the larger mass-market efforts. It was an awesome overarching brand. I guess its just the ways things go with new initiatives. You can't have a new initiative without a new name
