Event Details

Today learning happens anytime, anyplace, at any age. How can 21st century learners demonstrate their knowledge and skills? Digital badges can inspire learning, unlock jobs, educational and civic opportunities and open new pipelines for talent.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with Mozilla and HASTAC, invite you to an event on September 15th to explore the potential of Badges for Lifelong Learning. Badges are a new assessment tool that will help identify skills mastered in formal and informal settings, virtually and in physical spaces, and in schools, workplaces and communities.


Featured speakers include:

•The Honorable Arne Duncan, Secretary, U.S. Department of Education

•Charles F. Bolden, Jr., Administrator, NASA

•Emily Stover DeRocco, President, The Manufacturing Institute and the National Center for the American Workforce

•Mark Surman, Executive Director, Mozilla Foundation


The event will feature the announcement of the 4th Digital Media and Learning competition which will provide up to $2 million in grants for innovations in the use of Badges for Learning.
