Wallace Foundation Webinar on Providence & Boston’s Digital Badging Initiatives

The Providence After School Alliance and Boston After School & Beyond have been collaborating on a process to design new citywide STEM and college readiness badging systems that have the potential to recognize, motivate, validate, and link competencies and achievements gained in and out-of-school. During the webinar, the presenters discussed their vision for digital badging, the process for bringing together cross-sector partners to align standards, targeted competencies, and assessment tools, as well as their insights on the work to create and test the systems.
