Digital badge training -- TeachersDigital Badges: Development WorkshopAngela ElkordyDoctoral CandidateEastern Michigan University,Leadership and Counseling Dept. aelkordy@emich.edu{Most useful for teachers in middle & high school, upper el. 1Teacher Joy!Workshop ObjectiveSession learning targets:The concept of digital badgesDigital badges, learning and assessmentPrinciples for designing effective badges and badge systemsTeaching practices & digital badgesDigital badge design overviewAdditional resourcesWorkshop ObjectivesOutcomes3What are digital badges?DML Competition 2011 (sponsored by MacArthur & HASTAC, supported by Dept. of Ed.4Participation -- you attended! (yay!) Social capital mentoring, sharing, collaborationIncremental -- series of knowledge, skills, or competencies (formative feedback)Achievement series of knowledge, skills, or competencies to task mastery (summary feedback)Types of badgesevidence-based;acknowledge and communicate skills;flexible (eventranscultural, embodying criteria important to communities of practice globally);granular (very specific skills and knowledge sets can be targeted);common assessments.Digital badges of learningRobust 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 skillscan be used to recognize, assess and communicate a wide variety of skills;add value and transparency in learning environments;differentiate.Digital badges for learningLearning targets;Behavioral targets;Socio-emotional targets;Skill based targets;Proficiency (or Mastery) targets;How can I use digital badges? (contexts)Motivation targets;Measure new skills;Differentiate instruction;Communicate expectations;Provide essential formative feedbackIncrease learners metacognitive skills and self-efficacyShare ideas!How can I use digital badges?

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 evidencedDigital badges can guide or scaffold learning, leading to greater understandingThrough performance activities, learning is made visibleDesign for UnderstandingTeam Design TimeDigital Badging Systems: Makewav.esCan join as a teacher and make your own site20The Bare Minimum:Badge skills Badge criteria (performance tasks)Evidence of learning (products)Badge image (visual design)1.

It is designed to be used in a variety of content areas in addition to science and math.4 levels plus one challenge levelAligned with Next Generation Science Standard, Practice: Analyzing and Interpreting DataAligned with CCSS Math (Data and Statistics, for grades 6-10)Also, alignment with NETS-S and P21Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of LearningSuitable for grades 6 and up (meets 6-8 standards)Data Whiz Badge TrackThis digital badge trajectory scaffolds intermediate and advanced learning in data and statistical concepts for middle and high school age learners.
