  • Makewaves is an online community that makes it safe for children to share what they make with a real audience. Teachers often describe Makewaves as a safe facebook and the BBC featured Makewaves when looking at how you can engage tech savvy young people when the tools they love to communicate with a locked down when they enter school.
    We work with several national partners to use the Makewaves tools to get messages and resources out to young people. Enable young people to respond in interesting and relevant ways such as leaving comments online, submitting their own videos, images and blogs in response to partner inspiration and being rewarded for their engagement through earning Open Badges that can be displayed elsewhere on the web.
    Makewaves is accessible in home and at school.
    Each school has their own site within Makewaves and each young person has their own profile page.
  • This shows the Makewaves homepage, some of the national badge missions that young people can take. Young people can also interact via mobiles and the Makewaves app.
  • Impact of badges on motivation since launched. Being adopted by several project partners as a mechanism to engage young people and to reward achievement and skills.
