At my public library job in the DC-area, my greatest need is helping youth develop
some digital literacy goals and competences. At the computer center which I help run (with 28 Linux stations), the youth are spending way too much time playing games. They're entitled to use their
time in whatever way they choose, but as a community, we need to do a lot better giving
them constructive goals to work towards in their outside of school time. These goals are particularly needed by youth who aren't receiving sufficient goal guidance in their homes.
Mozilla Badges will be really useful for this -- and the new Moodle module for Mozilla
Badges sounds like it could be make the whole thing easier to implement.
For a very interesting blog post about the Mozilla Badges module for Moodle, see
Exploring how the Mozilla Badges module for Moodle could work would
be a neat group project for a Linux user group, partnering with a makerspace
and public library. If only -- if only there were a city someplace in the United
States where relationships between these entities already existed.
I betcha some foundation funds could easily be raised for such a project.
Not just the local foundation, but the national foundations, like the MacArthur Foundation.
