Digital badge training -- TeachersShowcase Learning with Digital BadgesAngela ElkordyDoctoral CandidateEastern Michigan UniversityCollege of EducationLeadership and Counseling Dept.aelkordy@emich.edu{Most useful for teachers in middle & high school, upper el. 1Digital badges mini survey: http://goo.gl/5RhkfRFollow along: http://goo.gl/JAeOzdTITLE OF WORKSHOP: Getting Started with Digital BadgesDESCRIPTION OF WORKSHOP: Merit badges have gone digital! Digital badges contain informationabout who issued a learning challenge, who earned the badge, and the evidence of learning that wasrequired to earn it. Badges help bridge the gap between formal and informal learning. Participants in thisworkshop will learn how to make digital badges and how to use them in instruction and assessment.MACUL Pre- ConCollaborate -- backchannel:https://todaysmeet.com/DigitalBadgesTeacher JOY!ObjectiveWhat are digital badges?Why digital badges for learning and assessment?View examples of badging systemsUnderstand how digital badges can add value and transparency in learning environmentsDigital badges study: Opportunity!

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 UnderstandingSample badge designDesign ToolsBadges Examples & IdeasOpportunity to participate in award winning research Grades 6-12Digital BadgesBadge Design: Learning trajectory with increasing cognitive difficultyStandards alignmentPerformance assessment / suggested activities to demonstrate content masteryResources and ideasThis 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 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. 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 P21Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of LearningSuitable for grades 8-12 and up (meets 9-12 standards)Data Hacker Badge TrackThe 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.
