If you are trying to implement “deeper learning” or “project based learning”, then use a series of labels to accomplish your goals. Perhaps even provide conditionals in the series: complete this task successfully then go to this learning label, if not, then go to this label.

What do students do with learning labels? They collect and manage them with drag and drop dashboard. Over time, students mark completed tasks and archive them when they are no longer needed.

What are Skill Points? They summarize learning for a task. As students work on tasks, they get Skills Points as they successfully complete tasks. Over time, a student shares the progress in learning a skill as a Skill Emblem.

As a practitioner (or what you expect of students), you might any or all of this functionality.
