Badge Levels

Families have children, parents, and grandparents. Schools have primary, secondary and universities. And games have Levels.

As your skill progresses, you achieve progressively higher levels of badges. This describes the Badge Levels awarded by Kinex.

Level Sample (with color) Description

Aware

Do you know?

Badge icon "Glasses (4620)" provided by Scott Lewis, from The Noun Project under Creative Commons - Attribution (CC BY 3.0) This level demonstrates awareness. The Aware Badge is awarded upon completing reading tasks, brief visits to locations, and participating in discussions. Holders of this Badge know about the power of connecting, but may have not yet established a practice of belonging and connected-ness.

Adept

Just Do It!

This level demonstrates skilled adeptness. The Adept Badge is awarded after sustained connected-ness practice. Training has reached the point you no longer have to think about it and habits have been formed. Holders of this Badge have established a connected-ness practice.

Advocate

Build it and they will come.

This level demonstrates a willingness to help others belong, and also an ability to  create safe spaces where we can play (we are at our creative best when we play). The Advocate Badge is awarded upon completing steps which build Kinex and the community it serves.

Angel

Dreamweaver

The Angel Badge — also known as the Weaver Badge — is awarded to those who create the next <fill-in-the-blank>.

Playing the Kinex game awards most badges at the Aware (Orange) and Adept (Green) levels. The Advocate (Blue) level badges are awarded for building and maintaining the Courses, Locations, and Puzzles. Kinex is still young, so Angel Badges are but a canvas. Kinex is a bit of paint and maybe a set of brushes for painting a community’s picture.
