Mozilla Releases New Web Literacy Standard

The Mozilla Corporation released version 1.0 of the Web Literacy Standard on October 23. The standard is broken down into three core skill categories: explore, build, and connect. Mozilla hopes to train a generation of webmakers – users that not only consume information and media on the web but also generate it.

The standard is useful for those who want to teach web skills. It is ideally suited to serve as a backbone in curriculum creation for technology classes offered in public libraries and university libraries.

The standard is a work in progress and can viewed here: https://webmaker.org/standard.
