Almost a year and a half ago, BuzzMath was selected as one of the winners of the MacArthur Foundation-funded Digital Media and Learning Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition. Since then, we’ve been working on the creation of a digital badge system to explore how badges can be used to help students learn, demonstrate skills and unlock opportunities. For the next school year, 6th grade badges will be available! The implementation of the 7th and 8th grade badges will follow. You can see the full list of badges and their criterias on this page:
Starting in October, schools will be able to activate the badge system for their students. Can’t wait until October to try it? We are looking for some classes to test the system in September.
Send us an email to be in the first schools to collect Buzz Badges!
