Bright Spots

Shout to Lindsay Folker at Park Lane Elementary! After learning about Digital Badging she knew that her students, with work they were already doing, would qualify for many of our Digital Badges. After sitting down for a quick planning session, Lindsay figured out 4 ways that her students could Badges based off the work in their Google Drive and in notebooks in their classroom. Nice work, Lindsay!

A huge congrats to all the teachers and support staff that made Girl's Tech Camp a huge success. 6th grade girls from the district were involved in STEM activities all day long and had the opportunity to earn 5 Digital Badges for their skill development during this fun filled, exciting day.

Endorser Highlight - Red Line Gallery

One of our newest endorsers is Red Line Gallery. They are a studio and workspace for upcoming artists focusing on promoting arts education in Denver. When your students earn Summit Badges, they may have an opportunity to visit Red Line and learn about the incredible work they do for our local artists here in Colorado. Visit their website to learn more!
