4-H digital badges are beginning to take shape as we work through the requirements for each of the badges. Determining the requirements and the issuing process is much more difficult than I had imagined mainly due to the varied structure of 4-H. Each LGU (Land Grant University) runs their program a little bit differently. But more importantly, as we drill down from the state to county to local 4-H clubs and programs there are many permutations that should be considered for our badging system. For example, in some states it is the local volunteer that works closely with youth to earn a robotics badge while the 4-H Educator (Agent) supports the volunteer. Other states may have 4-H Educators or classroom teachers work more closely with the youth. The fact is that there are many scenarios that will have to be taken into account when badges are issued. Our proposed badging system will require that youth and adults work together to complete the issuing process by providing several bodies of evidence. Adult leaders will be required to guide the learning process and review and approve the bodies of evidence and then recommend the 4-H digital badge to the county and/or state 4-H representative.
