This summer, I’m working with The Sprout Fund on the City of Learning movement here in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh City of Learning is a city-wide effort to connect kids to great learning opportunities across the city and to help recognize kids’ achievements through awarding them digital badges. More than 40 organizations across the city are working together to create and award badges to the kids who enroll in their programs. Whether they’re learning improv, fashion design, coding, welding, video production, or almost anything else, Pittsburgh City of Learning offers kids a chance to explore their interests and learn new things all summer long. I’m really proud of the work that’s happened so far, and I know it’s only going to grow and expand as the year goes on.
You can learn more about the work we’re doing here in Pittsburgh on the main Pittsburgh City of Learning homepage here, and you can learn more about digital badges in the video below.
You can also learn even more about what digital badges are from this episode of iQ: smartparent.
