Badging Practice Brief: Recommendations from Boston Beyond’s 2015-16 Digital Badge Pilot

Boston After School & Beyond – lead for BoSTEM – releases a brief summarizing lessons from its 2015-2016 Badge Pilot (supported by the Noyce Foundation) in which seven long-time partners of Boston Beyond with experience measuring program quality and skill outcomes for youth piloted a new digital badging system. These programs predominantly served students in grades 6 through 8. The brief contains concrete, on-the-ground recommendations for practitioners implementing digital badging initiatives.
