There are two major targets we should be trying to reach with Participation Leaders.
- Their personal goals that they set leaving Mozlando. You should make the Thimble remix as much of a hackjam to ensure the greatest collection of data.
- An increase in participation on what ever team the participation leader most associates with.
Personal Learning Goal
This one should be easier. Create a spreadsheet from the Thimble remix, emails, and #mozfest goals. Identify some variables: Does a final product exist/How many times was the project documented/A reflective post, etc.
This can be part of the greater story telling as well. Once a goal is set poeple should be filming, instagramming, webmakering, Thimbling, blogging…something to document their journey/
We need better baseline data across each team in order to be able to measure the impact of Participation Leaders. This is a long term goal but one I see as central to the Participation teams success.
Each other team/org/group across Mozilla should be able to get a rough number of active monthly contributors, monthly email listserv members, etc. Many would not have this data or a system in place to collect this data.
We will be able to get a qualitative feel of increased participation just based on the content created across the Participation team but if we want to measure our impact long term we need to have a larger discussion with folks all across Mozilla.
