FIRST Badges is a collaborative effort of a group of FRC mentors in Michigan. The project uses the Open Badges concept with badges issued via Badgr.
The badges are reviewed and approved by members of the FIRST Badges development team. Students/Participants work in partnership with their FRC team mentors to complete the badge tasks.
Mentors recommend students/participants for Level 1 and Level 2 achievements and award the badges through the Badgr platform.
Level 3 and 4 achievements represent deeper learning. These badges are earned using a digital portfolio submission and review process.
Students can display earned badges via Badgr. Digital or “open” badges contain information useful to students and future employers.
The badges are designed to demonstrate a progression of skills through a particular domain. The progression has 4 levels, corresponding to actions learners can prove. The development team used the current revisions to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Level 1 – Remembering/Understanding
Level 2 – Understanding/Applying
Level 3 – Applying/Analyzing
Level 4 – Creating/ Evaluating
