Content badges provide a comprehensive view of your student’s progress and accomplishments relating to the Common Core Math Standards. Content badges are automatically awarded as students successfully complete a series of practice activities and one culminating activity relating to a specific concept. Credentials are listed for each badge, including the standard(s) it represents.
New challenge activities can be unlocked in each topic. They will let students consolidate their learning by focusing on the important understanding, knowledge and skills presented in the CCSS.
These badges can be pushed to a student’s Mozilla Backpack, which provides a comprehensive view of a student’s accomplishments.
The Buzzmath’s badge system is one of 30 winning Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition projects, an initiative that was supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and administered by HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) through Duke University and University of California-Irvine, in partnership with the Mozilla Foundation. Since then, they have been part of a team of innovators 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.
