Web Literacy ‘maker’ badges

Web Literacy 'maker': Navigation

 Introduction

To help with Maker Party (launching tomorrow!) we’ve been working on a series of Web Literacy ‘maker’ badges. These will be issued to those who can make digital artefacts related to one or more competencies on the Web Literacy Map.

The structure of each of the Webmaker resources page for each competency (e.g. Navigation) is:

We’re not currently badging the ‘Discover’ level, and the ‘Teach’ level is currently covered by the Webmaker Mentor badge. These new ‘Make’ badges are our first badges specifically for web literacy.

 How you can help

We’re planning to launch these badges at the end of July. Before we do so, we want to make sure the process works smoothly for everyone, for each badge. We’re also very much interested in your feedback on the whole process.

Here’s what to do. Go to the link below and follow the instructions. You’ll need to either make something related to one of the Web Literacy Map competencies, or link to something you’ve made before.
