You seem to be asking about my $n$Lab entries on higher differential geometry and related. I have now added there a

with some pointers. See there for an extended and fully hyperlinked version of the following. Also, maybe you find useful some of the talk slides and lecture notes that I keep here.

The most classical aspect of higher differential geometry is the theory of orbifolds, Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids and their application in foliation theory. Original reference here include

For properly appreciating the homotopy theory of Lie groupoids and for passage to more general higher differential geometry it is crucial to understand Lie groupoids as smooth stacks which are geometry: differentiable stacks. Each of the following references provides introduction to this point of view

Kai Behrend, Ping Xu, Differentiable Stacks and Gerbes (arXiv:0605.5694).

Metzler, Topological and smooth stacks (arXiv:math/0306176)

As a warmup for these considerations it may be useful to first look at smooth spaces given by just sheaves on the site of smooth manifolds, see at

Passing from here to more general smooth groupoids, to smooth groupoids and then eventually to smooth ∞-groupoids involves (∞,1)-topos theory proper, with some tools such as the model structure on simplicial presheaves over the site of smooth manifolds (or equivalently just that of Cartesian spaces).

For motivation for this step see also

This goes on to discuss differential cohomology and of the differential cohomology hexagon formulated in stable objects in smooth ∞-groupoids (hence in sheaves of spectra on the site of smooth manifolds/Cartesian spaces) in higher differential geometry, see
