Today at the Mozilla Webmaker badges.

Webmaker badges are an exciting new way to teach, learn and get credentials for digital skills. They’re free, fun, and part of Mozilla’s non-profit mission to create a more web literate world.

Learning by making

This provides a lasting record of their skills and achievements, and shows off their new skills to teachers, classmates, peers or future colleges and employers, backed by Mozilla.
