Creating the concept and blueprints for Open Badge Pathways
The Mozilla Foundation works to ensure the internet remains a public resource that is open and accessible to all. We were contracted by the Mozilla Foundation, with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to develop tools and processes to aid pathways to employment for underpriviledged youth. Informed by research on factors affecting uptake of employment and other positive life opportunities by youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, we created the concept, blueprints and a mobile-first prototype for Open Badge Pathways, to signpost pathways and enable individuals to use open digital badges to progress towards learning and employment opportunities.
