Chicago’s Summer of Learning: the Latest Application of Badges

A recent post at HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) described the latest badgesapplication 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.
