Have you heard of Youtopia? What about gamification? We’re newbies to the concept as well, but recently we were invited to explore the platform and application and we couldn’t wait to share it with all of our PTOs, teachers and school fundraiser planners. Youtopia focuses on gamifying learning and service, using “badges” as motivational incentives to promote behavior and positive learning habits.
Stainbridge Academy, a local not-for-profit private school in San Mateo, CA serving students with mild to moderate learning differences, has recently teamed up with school fundraising company Mixed Bag Designs in a 13th year internship program.
At Mixed Bag Designs, we want to help school fundraisers on their journey to going green and living healthy. We think the health of students and their communities should come first, and we’re happy to share first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign, LetsMoveSchools.org, with everyone. The organization’s goal is to engage 50,000 students over the next 5 years.
