The goals of the MacBook Maestro website and associated workshops are:
- To empower educators to further develop and demonstrate knowledge about and skills with MacBook laptops running the MacOS.
- To explore and model the use of a Mozilla Open Badges compliant WordPress site and the BadgeOS plugin (with Credly) to issue badges reflecting MacBook knowledge and skills.
Badges you earn on MacBookMaestro are auto-magically sent to Credly.com so you can view them in the free Credly iOS app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Just be sure to log into the Credly app with the same email you use on MacBookMaestro.com.
