  • MW – online community that makes it safe and easy for young people to share their work with a real audience of international schools. Safe facebook. BBC – how engage tech savvy young people when the tech they love to use to communicate is often blocked when they come in to school. BBC featured MW as [art of this answer. Idea is that MW taps in to these technologies, it is a community where young people can express themselves, share videos and stories they create, build up a profile and leave comments and feedback for each other but all in a safe and moderated community. We have a scheme called Safe which supports you to enable children to learn how to behave responsibly online. One school that went through the safe certificate said that their children learned not only how to behave safely and appropriately online but how to project a positive image online, leave a ‘smiling’ comment and establish connections with other children across the gloabe in a rewarding way for learning. USA – 80% of exmployers now google candidates for jobs before looking at their CVs to decide whether to take their application for a position further – looking for a positive digital footprint.

  • There is a Makewaves app that makes uploading from iPads / iPods simple
  • From across over 40 countries. This is an example of one school’s site.
    British school in Rio has recently joined the community – case study and feedback. They have made specific links with schools in the UK as well as using the general MW community to give their pupils a real global audience.
  • Each young person on Makewaves has their own profile page that they control. This can also become an eportfolio for their work, an online CV, especially when combined with Digital Badges they have earned and display through Makewaves.
  • Unfortunately Cathy is unable to join us in person today. However, she has written up a report and answered some questions based on their first beginnings with Makewaves as a British International school.
  • Reference Cathy’s case study. With NVPS they are comparing mini beasts from each of their communities. They have also been using badges – digital badges are something that have been developed over the last year and a half on Makeaves and have had an extremely interesting effect for learners and the schools within our community.
  • Badges are something new to Makewaves and they have had a surprising effect. Has anyone heard of Open Badges? A format developed by Mozilla (firefox). Recognise and reward achievement and learningthat happens in all sorts of places..
  • Exanple – office of Gordon & Sarah Brown
  • Why Open Badges are different. The data they carry about how the young person has earned them, From Mozilla , Based on gaming incentives.
  • Badges on students’ pages, in members’ newsfeed and in public library. Evidence unique to their own activity.
  • Why Open Badges are different. The data they carry about how the young person has earned them, From Mozilla , Based on gaming incentives.
  • Badges created by partners and by other schools can be found in the public badge library on Makewaves. This is just a snapshot of that. Learner-led. Schools – track achievement and all types of learning & engagement.
  • Evidence can be rich media – social media tools of Makewaves,
  • Young oeople can se which members have chosen to take a badge. Mexican wave effect. Young people are notified when a friend / clasmate earns a badge. Quality not quantity.
  • Teachers receive the evidence and award a badge. Also the option for Makewaves to award based on specfic criteria or a project partner can manage this process.
