1. Short history.
Although I started in May 2010, the first information that went online was in July. I started on Blogger, but moved to WordPress when I couldn’t do what I wanted to with the blog. Look through the badges, design and changes from the past five years.
2. Social media.
The first social media site for the Enrichment Project was Yahoo! Groups. Explore this site and / or other places the Enrichment Project exists. Don’t forget to ask for the Follower badge for any of the listed sites you choose to follow:
- Blog / larajla.com
- Email / aWeber
- Yahoo! Groups
3. Digital badges.
“Earning digital badges to expand your experiences and explore the world through free online materials” is the basis for the Enrichment Project. Review the over 200 badges available. Choose five from at least two different categories and earn them.
- Games / Sports
- Performing Arts
- Recipe / Nutrition
4. Display badges.
You can display your badges on social media sites or even put them in your Backpack if you are part of Mozilla’s Open Badge project. Check out Open Badges to see if this is something you’d like to be a part of.
5. Badge sets.
Some of the badges are listed in sets. These badge sets are designed for you to select steps to create unique meetings and events with a theme. Look at the badge sets list. Are there any you might be interested in presenting to others?
6. More than badges.
Over the last five years, not only have supplements been part of badge programs to help you earn them, but items like Grab ‘n’ Go sheets help give you even more ideas for working with others. Look for non-badge offerings on larajla.com.
Do you have a badge program that you’d like to recommend? Steps that need to be added to a badge program? Recommendations to create a set from presented badges?
As you look through the badge programs, keep a list and share a few suggestions with me at larajla gmail.com.
8. What’s to come?
There’s always something new, whether it’s technology or a new way of thinking. I hope you’ll stay around to see how the Enrichment Project continues to develop over the next five years . . . perhaps even longer.
