“Digital On-Ramps, a workforce development program in the Office of University and Community Partnerships at Drexel University, recently shared the LRNG digital badging initiative with a broad group of service organizations as part of a discussion about how digital badges might work in their industry and track the work of service fellows.
The event was led by Catie Wolfgang, the Director of Workforce Strategies in Philadelphia’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO). Catie has worked with service organizations for several years and is the founder of PowerCorpsPHL, which piloted Playlists called Career Journey and Tree Planting Techniques and Care Essentials with LRNG Philly this summer.
Digital On-Ramps worked with PowerCorpsPHL to present the general value of digital badges and to demonstrate the power of the LRNG system. Margy Wilcox of PowerCorpsPHL reviewed the Career Journey and Tree Care Playlists, which relate to both 21st century competencies and the specific skills required to complete service projects.”
