Badge learning is…

an innovative approach to instructional design and learning that uses digital media; project-based and student-centered learning; teacher as coach; multiple learning pathways; and formative student feedback.

“Open Badges,” more than just graphic icons and coined by the Mozilla Foundation, communicate what a student knows and can do through metadata tied to each badge.

Open Badges can be shared through a variety of web-based interfaces, serving as transparent micro-credentials of a student’s understandings, skills and accomplishments.

TLN-MainTAMRITZ (meaning “incentive” in Hebrew) strives to transform how learning happens in Jewish education by leveraging new media literacies.

Through a national digital badge learning network, TAMRITZ educators and students develop habits of connected learners and level up their skill sets in digital media and learning.
