<ul><li> Slide 1 </li> <li> Digital Badges: Development Workshop Angela Elkordy Doctoral Candidate Eastern Michigan University, Leadership and Counseling Dept. aelkordy@emich.edu </li> <li> Slide 2 </li> <li> Teacher Joy! Workshop Objective </li> <li> Slide 3 </li> <li> Session learning targets: The concept of digital badges Digital badges, learning and assessment Principles for designing effective badges and badge systems Teaching practices &amp; digital badges Digital badge design overview Additional resources Workshop Objectives </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> What are digital badges? </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> Participation -- you attended! (yay!) Social capital mentoring, sharing, collaboration Incremental -- series of knowledge, skills, or competencies (formative feedback) Achievement series of knowledge, skills, or competencies to task mastery (summary feedback) Types of badges </li> <li> Slide 6 </li> <li> evidence-based; acknowledge and communicate skills; flexible (even transcultural, embodying criteria important to communities of practice globally); granular (very specific skills and knowledge sets can be targeted); common assessments. Digital badges of learning </li> <li> Slide 7 </li> <li> Robust digital badge assessments : Effectively communicate learning objectives and evidence of learning; scaffold learning; motivate learners; empower learners to own their learning and results; provide essential formative feedback; communicate expectations widely; reinforce and strengthen important metacognitive skills can be used to recognize, assess and communicate a wide variety of skills; add value and transparency in learning environments; differentiate. Digital badges for learning </li> <li> Slide 8 </li> <li> Learning targets; Behavioral targets; Socio-emotional targets; Skill based targets; Proficiency (or Mastery) targets; How can I use digital badges? (contexts) </li> <li> Slide 9 </li> <li> Motivation targets; Measure new skills; Differentiate instruction; Communicate expectations; Provide essential formative feedback Increase learners metacognitive skills and self-efficacy Share ideas! How can I use digital badges? (goals &amp; strategies) </li> <li> Slide 10 </li> <li> Another School </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> MIA </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> Discuss with your neighbors (4 mins) Share with all of us Learning you would like to communicate </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> Source: Building Badges for Informal Learning Environments: http://fastapps.hri.uci.edu/files/2423/files/BADGE- workshopsheets.pdf http://fastapps.hri.uci.edu/files/2423/files/BADGE- workshopsheets.pdfhttp://fastapps.hri.uci.edu/files/2423/files/BADGE- workshopsheets.pdf Track student learning over time </li> <li> Slide 14 </li> <li> Badging Examples Chicago Summer of Learning Competition Winners </li> <li> Slide 15 </li> <li> Digital Badging Systems: Passport </li> <li> Slide 16 </li> <li> Digital Badging Systems: Classbadges.com </li> <li> Slide 17 </li> <li> Objectives Learning targets Badge skills Badge criteria (performance tasks) Evidence of learning Alignment to standards (if applicable) Rubric (optional) Learning activities (optional) Badge image (visual design) Digital Badge Design: Essential Elements </li> <li> Slide 18 </li> <li> Understanding by Design What are the learning targets? What kind of products will evidence learning? What kinds of activities and experiences will support mastery learning? Bonus: instantly reflective! How can I *teach* these concepts to ensure learning? Digital badge assessments can align well with the idea of critically looking at learning and mastery of concepts can be evidenced Digital badges can guide or scaffold learning, leading to greater understanding Through performance activities, learning is made visible Design for Understanding </li> <li> Slide 19 </li> <li> Team Design Time </li> <li> Slide 20 </li> <li> Digital Badging Systems: Makewav.es </li> <li> Slide 21 </li> <li> The Bare Minimum: Badge skills Badge criteria (performance tasks) Evidence of learning (products) Badge image (visual design) 1.
