A recent post at HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) described the latest application of digital learning badges: Chicago’s Summer of Learning.
In 2013, the Mozilla Open Badges team worked with the city of Chicago Mayor’s Office, the MacArthur Foundation and many other youth-serving organizations to launch an amazing and exciting learning campaign called the Chicago Summer of Learning (CSOL).
This was an ambitious project that included designing, implementing and deploying a city-wide badge system in collaboration with nearly 100 organizations within a very short period of time.
Check out the participant-produced video below. You can learn more about the Summer of Learning and HASTAC here.
