What are digital badges?

Digital age learners.

Socio-cultural context DML Competition: Digital Badge Development

Learning targets (knowledge);

Behavioral targets;

Socio-emotional targets;

Soft skill targets;

Skill based targets (competencies);

Proficiency (or Mastery) targets;

Motivation targets;

How can I use digital badges?

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?

Whos Badging?Clinton Global Initiative

evidence-based;acknowledge and communicate skills;flexible;granular;common assessments.Digital badges of learning

(eventranscultural, embodying criteria important to communities of practice globally), (very specific skills and knowledge sets can be targeted)15Robust digital badge assessments :

are transparent;scaffold learning;motivate learners;provide critical formative feedback;communicate expectations widely; reinforce and strengthen important metacognitive skillscan be used to recognize, assess and communicate a wide variety of skills;differentiate.

Digital badges for learning

Achievement (specific criteria)Affiliation (belonging)Behavioral Demonstration of specific skills (products)Incremental (toward a goal)Participation (events, classes, meetings)Social capital (mentoring, collaborating, team building)

Understanding by DesignWhat 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

Badges Examples & Ideas

Opportunity to participate in award winning research Grades 6-12

Digital Badges

Badge Design:

Learning trajectory with increasing cognitive difficultyStandards alignmentPerformance assessment / suggested activities to demonstrate content masteryResources and ideas

This digital badge trajectory scaffolds learning in basic data and statistical concepts for middle and high school age learners. It is designed to be used in a variety of content areas in addition to science and math.

4 levels plus one challenge level

Aligned 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 P21

Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of Learning

Suitable for grades 6 and up (meets 6-8 standards)Data Whiz Badge Track

This digital badge trajectory scaffolds intermediate and advanced learning in data and statistical concepts for middle and high school age learners. It is designed to be used in a variety of content areas in addition to science and math.

4 levels plus one challenge level ;

Aligned with Next Generation Science Standard, Practice: Analyzing and Interpreting DataAligned with CCSS Math (Data and Statistics, for grades 8-10)Also, alignment with NETS-S and P21

Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of Learning

Suitable for grades 8-12 and up (meets 9-12 standards)

Data Hacker Badge Track

The focus of this badge series is: learner as innovative problem solver. Design is viewed as a cyclical process, during which the learner is immersed in design thinking: defines a problem or a challenge;

seeks information to inform a design solution (previous research and needs analysis);

proposes a potential solution;

communicates outcomes, including reflections/ recommendations on how to improve or refine the design for another iteration of design cycle.
