I made this

Greetings friends, my name is Rob and I created this podcast to help spread the word about folks using digital badges, credentials, and pathways to create rewarding lifelong learning programs for their communities around the world. Based on the first comment, I’ve changed the questions I ask to focus less on Badgr and more on the solutions, thanks! Keep em coming : )

Interesting to hear use case in a middle school

Helpful to hear how teachers may be able to use badges with their students. Also sounded a bit like a Badgr platform commercial
