Releasing Badges in the Wild

Mozilla’s Hive Learning Networks prepare youth to thrive in school, work, and civic life by empowering educators to build innovative, connected learning experiences and teach the digital literacy skills essential for young people to discover and shape their world. At the heart of this effort are Webmaker.org badges designed to promote professional practices, unite community through shared culture and identity, and develop competencies around the mechanics, culture and citizenship of the web.
