ALittleWeb.org is a nonprofit community dedicated to shape the future of the Web and use it to enrich people’s Lives, Education, Community, and the Environment. We believe in spread the idea, information and knowledge and welcoming to talented people regardless of where they come from. A world that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent.
Open Educational Resources
Teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
Social entrepreneurship is facilitated by the use of the Internet, particularly social networking and social media websites. These websites enable social entrepreneurs to reach numerous people who are not geographically close yet who share the same goals and encourage them to collaborate online, learn about the issues, disseminate information about the group’s events and activities, and raise funds through crowdfunding.
Building a Collaborative Community
A community is defined as a group of people working together toward a common goal. Without a goal, there is no community.
Collaboration is a key factor in building a healthy community. People thrive in environments which free them to communicate and work together. When an environment is focused on collaboration, community members naturally feel a part of something bigger than themselves. The best way to transition from an individual to a collaborative mindset is to equip each community member for active participation.
Our Key Values
- Shared values and principles that inform decision-making and assessment processes are clear and obvious to members.
- People feel equipped and empowered to make meaningful contributions to collaborative work.
- Leaders mentor others and demonstrate strong accountability to the group by modeling shared values and principles.
- People have a common language and work together to ensure that ideas do not get “lost in translation,” and they are comfortable sharing their knowledge and stories to further the group’s work.
