Bring Digital Badges to Your School or Classroom

Tuesday 8:00 - 8:50 AM CDT

Badges, badges, badges. Fun, motivation, excitement. Ok, you get the point. Badges are a time tested (think like for 10,000 ago or more) method to bring out full achievement in students and adults. Everybody loves to receive recognition for things they have done.
The communication revolution (thanks Internet) means we can both give and display badges on a grander scale than ever before. My school is currently in a beta test stage for using badges with students and we would like to share our experiences so far. This workshop will cover some of the ins and outs of using badges in and outside of the classroom.
