GLOBAL KIDS, INC. ANNOUNCES NEW BADGING SYSTEM
TO CERTIFY INFORMAL AND INTEREST-DRIVEN LEARNING
More than two dozen institutions in New York City and Chicago invited to participate
Through a generous grant from the MacArthur Foundation, Global Kids, Inc. is excited to announce that it is developing a new badging system for New York City and Chicago members of The Hive Learning Networks. The Hive Learning Network is a community of civic and cultural institutions dedicated to transforming the learning landscape and creating opportunities for youth to explore their interests in virtual and physical spaces. Up to 28 Hive member organizations will pilot badging programs within the system, both for their own organizational needs and for the broader Hive network. Global Kids (GK) will contribute the first series of badges, for global citizenship and civic participation, and be amongst the first to offer a model demonstrating how the Badging System can be deeply integrated throughout a youth-serving organization.
