One of the big, practical lessons social science has given the rest of us is that of gamification: small game elements that improve an experience.
Supported this year by the Knight Foundation and Comcast NBCUniversal, all our attendees have a chance at earning badges (real, fun pins informed by Generocity’s reporting tracks) to place on a nice certificate to be displayed your office, fridge or (ideally!) carried with you everywhere you go.
This year, Tech in the Commons features four workshops starting next Monday during Philly Tech Week 2018 presented by Comcast and running for successive weeks, and then closes with two project nights.
What do you get with the badges? Three things: an actual certificate with some acknowledgement of your work, and if you get at least two of the six badges, we at Generocity will run a story here listing you and your organization (if you want!) and you’ll get an exclusive first-look at an expanded Tech in the Commons ebook so you can take your learning back to your organization.
Learn a bit more about these badges you can earn.
