Event description

Description

"Working in the open" sounds nice, but what does it mean? The Mozilla Foundation defines it as a way of working in which a community of people collaborate to make or build something amazing, and any product or knowledge that the community of collaborators creates is shared widely and freely with the public. But even within this scope, it can be challenging to figure out how to open up your work process with your youth participants.

In our fourth convening exploring openness in learning environments, we'll welcome David Bild of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, an alumnus of the Mozilla Open Leadership Training cohort and an active contributor to the Global Open Science Hardware movement, as we explore how to work in the open with teens. Register now for your free spot at our fourth workshop on Tuesday, February 13, from 6 to 8:30pm.

All HIPC III workshops, structured to enable a community of practice around Openness, are FREE to attend and will feature game-based professional development for educators and other interested folks. All workshops will feature food and drinks.

Got a question? Please reach out to Nathalie at nrayter@adlerplanetarium.org.



About HIPC III: This workshop series is the work of the Hive Interoperability & Portability Coalition III, composed of partners from the Adler Planetarium, Forall Systems, Inc., and Ci3′s GameChanger Chicago at the University of Chicago. In the current phase "Understanding the Open Internet," we hope to get learning program providers on board with concepts intrinsic to Hive Chicago in ways and contexts that are accessible to them. The workshops, which will explore concepts like Openness, Transparency, Agency, and Portability, will emphasize collaborative dicussion and fun, game-based activities that straddle digital and analog frameworks for understanding. Six workshops will take place over the course of the grant, open to all members of the Hive and other learning program providers in Chicago.

This program is made possible through a grant from the Hive Chicago Fund for Connected Learning and the Chicago Community Trust.
