It’s Not About Badges

Oh, yes! We use badges. Open Badges. They’re core to how we organized learning for students, parents, and teachers to find.

They’re rallying points for diverse community-members to view, contribute to, review, aImagend design. They’re port-keys for connected learning.

Our badges will be extremely transparent. So you know exactly what learning has been undertaken. (Or will be undertaken.)

You’ll know, too, that our badges have real significance. They’ll map directly to credit needed for high school graduation. So not a worry at all if they’ll help you go to college or get a job. Absolutely.

Yet it’s not about badges. It’s about packaging up all kinds of extended learning experiences.
