Educators from Hive NYC, Hive Chicago and Hive Toronto joined this month’s Mozilla Learning Community Call to share real examples of programs that illustrate the impact that learning and making can have on young people when school is not officially in session.
(...) Each guest speaker is invested in providing youth with learning opportunities that are relevant, timely, and promote the development of digital skills.What Niberca shared during this Hangout:
Emoti-con Design Fellows use popplet app to capture ideas about human connections using mixed media. This initial design process helps spark ownership in the project at an early stage and teaches digital literacy skills that will enhance their leadership experience.
This Learning Portfolio Project acts as an Emoti-con framework for using social media as an outlet for brainstorming, testing, and refining pieces of a project. This resource encourages both digital literacy in virtual spaces and responsible digital presence.
