Jeannie Crowley, Manager of Digital Media & Learning at Bank Street College of Education, and also a member of Hive NYC, recently earned a Webmaker Mentor badge after being an active part of our Teach the Web open online course.
“I’ve been actively involved in the #teachtheweb online community — mentoring a study group, sharing projects, creating resources, participating on Twitter, attending community calls, and finding new ways to get people actively involved. It’s been awesome!”
Here’s some of the great work Jeannie submitted to earn her badge:
- a Popcorn music video response to the NSA Prism scandal
