Thoughts on Outcomes[]

  • With Venture Outdoors we could make an Letter of Outdoors. Letter earner, as in varsity letter. But a varsity letter is more the domain of the coach and the school program and somewhat sacred grounds that is best left to the teams and coaches to determine and deploy. Creating Leaders Outdoors Here / Creating Leadership Outdoors Here seems to work.
  • The Tech Captain designation stands for a sense of mastery in three areas: playing well, technology, and leadership.
  • Logging 100 sessions seems to be a magical threshold in that a quality season of sports should / could include that many team events for practices and competitions. Doing three sports in one year would get three-hundred events.
  • What was a 2015 "digital badge" might be re-positioned into a "marker" and / or "medal" and / or "medallion". A number of markers would be needed along pathways and playlists to size up for the Digital Badge.
