Why put an Edutopia badge on my website?

Edutopia provides these badges to help all of us promote and support 21st-century learning in education. Spread the awareness and together we can put the spotlight back on improving our education system.

Why put an Edutopia widget on my website?

Our widgets are a great way to have engaging and new educational content infused into your website or blog. Use our content as a resource and please embed these widgets anywhere you want -- we're here to provide educators with as many free and useful resources as we can.

How do I put these badges/widgets on my website?

Simply copy and paste the code for the widget/badge that you want to place on your website or blog. If you have a wordpress blog, please copy and paste the wordpress code.

Are you sure I can just embed these widgets/badges on my website/blog? Do I need to credit anyone?

Embed away! When you copy and paste the code, it'll have credits associated with the badges and widgets. These are absolutely free to use -- no strings :)

I prefer flash. Do you have specific code for the widget in flash?

Yes, we do. Send us a note at community@edutopia.org and we'll email it to you.

Hi Racquel -

I did some digging and it seems to me that Tumblr is filtering the html.

These steps may help Tumblr interpret the html:

:: Go to settings
:: At the bottom, turn off 'Use rich text editing' and 'Filter HTML', and save settings.

Hope this helps!

Hi Roslyn,

What code are you trying to paste? Our widget code or our badges code?

If it's the badges code, I found this article that shows you how: http://bloggerstop.net/2008/09/how-to-embedadd-imagespictures-in.html.

If it's the widget, simply click on the "Get Widget link" underneath the widget and click on the Blogger icon. It'll walk you through installation using a wizard.

Hope this helps!

Anywhere I can get a badge to wear as I substitute teacher. My goal is to get students and staff to ask what it means.

We don't have physical badges. What were you thinking? Perhaps we can whip something up. We have buttons we can send you.

I keep getting an "url contains illegal characters" message. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Thanks for your help!

I've been looking into this. Can you verify the code that you're embedding into Blogger? Please email membership@edutopia.org, as this forum will not allow you to copy the code in a comment. Thanks!

Is there any way to embed Edutopia posts/blogs/whatever on a feed on my blog-with the content specifically about reading and writing?

Thanks,
