Why should your school join the TAMRITZ Badge Learning Network?

TAMRITZ takes a comprehensive approach to implementing badge learning by focusing on educators, students and schools….

Educators

TAMRITZ’s ongoing professional development and community of practice helps educators:

  • “Badgify” your school’s current and new curricula into an engaging, learning experience for students.
  • Streamline the badge design and implementation process with a user-friendly interface for posting curriculum, uploading badge icons, offering students feedback and tracking learner progress.
  • Provide frequent, formative feedback to students.
  • Stay abreast of current trends in pedagogy and digital media literacies through a 10-week “Digital Age Teaching” e-course and ongoing workshops, conversations and webinars.
  • Collaborate with colleagues within own school and with schools across North America, anytime, anywhere.
  • Share badging curricula through the Badging Clearinghouse, a badge learning curriculum exchange including graphics, rubrics and learning pathways.

 

Students

TAMRITZ’s badge learning platform fosters authentic, collaborative opportunities where students are intrinsically motivated by:

  • Collaborating with Jewish peers within own school and with other Jewish Day Schools through online TAMRITZ Learning Network.
  • Participating in a social, closed network or “walled garden.”
  • Receiving timely and frequent feedback on every step of the learning process.
  • Taking ownership of learning.
  • Demonstrating understanding and knowledge through transparent learning pathways, artifacts and conversations.
  • Enjoying choice in the learning journey through multiple pathways, designed by teachers from their own school.
