hat key and make it ours you want us to create a key of our own to shape and create;and look for the door that this key will unlock!the door to our imagination! I also feel that the way you said it if we could learn to learn in a way that we thought was possible then don't you think there would be greater grades improvement i mean if you don't like somthing it won't interest you. like math for instance, if you don't understand it you won't like it. like the math teachers if they understand math then good their a teacher. but if they want you to be as good as them they should try to help YOU understand in a way that you understand.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with Mozilla and HASTAC, invite you to an event on September 15th at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC and online at hastac.org/DML-competition-launch to explore the potential of Badges for Lifelong Learning. Badges are a new assessment tool that will help identify skills mastered in formal and informal settings, virtually and in physical spaces, and in schools, workplaces and communities.
Today learning happens anytime, anyplace, at any age. How can 21st century learners demonstrate their knowledge and skills? Digital badges can inspire learning, unlock jobs, educational and civic opportunities and open new pipelines for talent. The event will feature the announcement of the 4th Digital Media and Learning competition which will provide up to $2 million in grants for innovations in the use of Badges for Learning.
Watch the live video stream from the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington at hastac.org/DML-competition-launch from 9:00am to 10:30am EDT on September 15th.Featured speakers include:
