The Web Literacy Standard comprises a map of competencies and skills that Mozilla and our community of stakeholders believe are important to pay attention to when getting better at reading, writing and participating on the web. The Web Literacy Standard is part of Mozilla’s ongoing goal to create a generation of webmakers – those who can not only elegantly consume but also write and participate on the web"

A MOOC is a model of educational delivery that is, to varying degrees, massive, with theoretically no limit to enrollment; open, allowing anyone to participate, usually at no cost;
online, with learning activities typically taking place over the
web; and a course, structured around a set of learning goals
in a defined area of study.

"Anything Digital Can Be Seen, Manipulated, Experienced
With mobile devices, neither we, as educators, nor our students are limited to a single modality for presenting content or demonstrating understanding. Regardless of the device, the potential exists to create and consume images, audio, video, text and more."

"Polyominoes is the general name given to plane shapes made by joining squares together. Note that the squares must be 'properly' joined edge to edge so that they meet at the corners.
Each type of polyomino is named according to how many squares are used to make it. So there are monominoes (1 square only), dominoes (2 squares), triominoes (3 squares), tetrominoes (4 squares), pentominoes (5 squares), hexominoes (6 squares) and so on."

"Spatial Reasoning and STEM Success"

Jun 04, 15

"Think3d! promotes the spatial reasoning critical to success in math and science. Spatial thinking skills are an indispensible foundation for understanding math and science concepts and yet there is a recognized gap in spatial reasoning training, particularly for elementary age children. A sequence of three modules, the Think3d! curriculum targets 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. "

"Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper
folding, involves spatial thinking to both interpret and carry
out its instructions. As such, it has the potential to provide
spatial training (Taylor and Hutton under review). The
present work uses cognitive discourse analysis to reveal the
spatial thinking involved in origami and to suggest how it
may be beneficial for spatial training. Analysis of think-
aloud data while participants folded origami and its relation
to gender, spatial ability measures, and thinking style
suggest that one way that people profit from spatial training
is through the possibility to verbalize concepts needed to
solve-related spatial tasks."

"The program, Think3d!, consists of six units in which students in grades 3-6 learn to fold origami and build paper structures, both from diagrams and by reverse- engineering from models. In the process, they learn to develop their own algorithms to explore and track how changes in the angle of a fold, for example, or in the number of cuts in a folded paper change the final sculpture."
