Goals for the Hive NYC Badging System• Motivation for cross-network participationin Hive NYC activities• Meaningful participation in Hive NYC programs and increased attendance at network events• Understand Hive NYC as a network and how to leverage its resources• Increase digital media skills and expertise• Demonstrate key values and behaviorsas manifested through quests, activities, events
Big Design Questions• How can youth participation in member programs connect and inform larger network badges?• Should badges primarily be motivators or retroactive rewards?• How can we incentivize but avoid over-badging?• What is the trajectory for badge award?• What network behaviors should be encouraged?• Should network be overall badge provider?
