For the past few months, we’ve been meeting with a small group of Global Kids staff members called the Badges Fast Action Team or B-FAT. The group consists of five staff members who convene every other week to discuss big picture questions as we build out badges for ourorganization. So far, we've discussed what the overall badging schemata for Global Kids should look like, including what features there should be and what skills, abilities, accomplishments, etc. we want to badge. You can read about that in more detail here and a template of what it looks like here.
Most recently, we discussed two key questions:
1. Are their GK badges that we are offering to youth not in GK and GK badges that we want to certify other organizations to offer?
2. What is our process for rolling out the badges system and what challenges can we foresee?
