Badge Program Design: Signature Process


In the fall TAMRITZ visited four schools in the 2013-14 Badge Learning Network cohort to kick off their badge learning curriculum design processes, including Kehillah Schechter Academy, Krieger Schechter Day School, The Moriah School and Seattle Hebrew Academy.

TAMRITZ developed and implemented a unique training program that is process-based and flexible.  The training program supports schools in:

  • Building Team:  Identify values, skills and content; determine badge learning advisory team functions and process
  • Designing Badge Learning Programs:  Constellation, architecture, taxonomy, program guide, curriculum focus
  • Setting Goals:  Work plan, deadlines, monthly check-ins/webinars and ongoing coaching
  • Launching Badge Learning Programs

Training Kicks Off Online First…

Uber-MainSchools enter the badge learning design program after an intensive professional development, badge-based course, “Digital Age Teaching.”  The Digital Age Teaching course levels up the badge learning advisory teams’ skill sets in modern learning literacies; pedagogoical practices; and tools that naturally support learning in the Grades 5-8 classroom.  Digital Age Teaching also provides an introduction to open badges, and a safe community of practice for educators to play, tinker and learn through new media.  Through this immersive experience, teachers begin to understand the multiple layers and components that a badge learning experience might include.  Read more
