Community-made curriculum, from Africa to India
In the last few issues of this series, we explored the most inspiring teaching materials that have come out of Maker Parties and other community gatherings around the world this summer. Most recently, we looked at curriculum made in Africa, the United Kingdom and the USA. And this time, we’re heading to the beautiful land of India!
We’ll start by looking at a Webmaker Club recipe made by a talented group of Mozillians in Hyderabad. We’ll fly to Sathyabama University to learn about a Webmaker Open Online Train the Trainer (WOOTT) activity, and we’ll learn how to create our own digital business cards in Bapatla. We’ll finish our time together by learning about a Net Neutrality for Newbies teaching kit built from an Indian perspective, and a fun train game accompanied by an even more fun card generator from New Delhi that anyone can use to learn HTML. Namaste!
