Getting Web Literate
The Mozilla Foundation released its specification for a Web Literacy Standard. This, in the foundation and extended community’s view, is what people should know when participating on the Web.
Topics range from understanding the credibility of a Web site you’ve landed on; the ability to compare “information from a number of sources to judge the trustworthiness of content;” composing content for the Web (basic HTML, how to embed a video), remixing found content into something new; and basic coding with script frameworks, loops and arrays among other topics.
Take a look and see how literate you may be.
Educators teaching the Internets should explore the standard, according to Doug Belshaw, one of the standard’s creators, and consider incorporating it into their curricula.
If you’re interested in participating in the ongoing creating of the Web Literacy Standard, Mozilla places its open calls for ideas and consensus here.
