The Digital Currencies
Of The Community On Demand Digital Economy

A STEAM Education Financial Literacy Program Created by Dana Jewel Harris

Our in-game currencies are designed to strengthen financial literacy skills while allowing society members to invest in the development of products and services that our members create to address socio-economic conditions that may be negatively impacting their communities.

Digital Badges

Five Color-Coded Achievement Domains

Digital Badges are the images on each employability skill card in the Community On Demand card deck. They represent that service goals each learner must accomplish in order to earn digital badges from each achievement domain.

CONTRIBUTION VALUES

Each digital badge has a contribution value which is based on the impact each skill can make when used to solve real world challenges.  Contribution values are the total amount of funding resources created when a digital badge gets sponsored.  Digital badge sponsorships are used to sustain the Community On Demand digital economy and, upon receipt, are divided into the following three funding groups:

GIVE

30% of all digital badges sponsorships are allocated to a Student Stipend Fund to provide scholarships, grants, cash stipends and donations.

FUND

40% of all digital badge sponsorships go to our Impact Project Fund to create operating budgets for service-learning projects.

INVEST

30% of all digital badge sponsorships go to our Digital Media Network Fund to provide marketing support for start-ups, special events and social ventures.

Learners are encouraged to invest in themselves by playing Community On Demand to strengthen their employability skills. Learners can graduate through our leaderboards when their Contribution Values reach the the following milestones:
