We've launched SkillUp Somerville to support the out-of-school and adult lifelong learning programming happening in our City, primarily in the areas of digital and science literacy. The Skill Up platform allows for micro-credentialing through digital badging; training providers like our very our community members (Katie and Bissrat!) detail the skills and competencies learned and projects completed in a course. Class takers who successfully complete a course can then share their accomplishments, highlighting 21st century tool use competencies like CNC routing at FabVille or creative graphic design skills at Somerville Media Center.
Are you an organization providing skill training here in Somerville or to Somerville residents? Interested in offerings digital badging to class takers with SkillUp? Contact Nick Schonberger @ firstname.lastname@example.org and Skill Up!
