THE PARTNERSHIP

Storytelling Badge

Media Mega Badge

Reel Works and Urban Arts Partnership have partnered over the past six months to fine-tune a new way we teach media to young people. A badging system that represents a unique way to frame educational competencies that students can learn and easily take with them into the real world.

We have developed and implemented a new badge system for our introductory filmmaking workshops that can be used with youth media makers to identify and assess key learning areas.

Digital badges are a visual symbol of a competency — they signal to others what you know and can do.   We believe that badges provide the best platform to show the value of out-of-school learning that can be recognized by youth media organizations, schools, colleges, and future employers.

KEY LEARNING AREAS:

  • Storytelling
  • Camera
  • Editing
  • Sound
  • Production
  • Leadership

Reel Works & UAP Vision:

  • Celebrate shared experience of teaching high-level youth media
  • Share collective need and goal for how to implement competency standards and media badges system

STORY OF ACHIEVEMENT

Whether they’re issued by one Educator or many, badges can build upon each other and be stacked to tell the full story of youth’s skills and achievements within the Academy.

DIGITAL PORTFOLIO

Badges are information-rich. Each badge has important data built in that links back to the youth, criteria and verifying evidence on your Website.

LEARNING GOALS

Recognize our youth’s work, encourage learning, and characterize efforts. Both organizational and learner goals are key components of determining the “recipe” for any badge system.
