Mozilla’s Web Literacy Standard is a new online framework drawn up to help people read, write and participate on the web. Launched in its beta version in July 2013, the standard comprises a map of competencies and skills that Mozilla and its community of stakeholders believe are important to help millions of people create new tools and content for the web, rather than simply absorbing it as passive users.
The Web Literacy Standard isn't just about coding - It covers every part of web literacy, from learning basic coding skills to a base knowledge about privacy and safety. The new framework is made up of three strands: Exploring, Building, and Connecting. In turn, each strand is made up of several competencies, and each competency is comprised of a number of skills.
While working to release version 1.0 at the Mozilla Festival in October, the project is currently looking for feedback from educators, from policy makers and from learners, who are invited to map existing curricula and resources against the Web Literacy Standard.
