Primary Learning Objectives
- Understand the basic concepts of digital badging and its potential to encourage lifelong learning
- Understand the options available for digital badging infrastructure and delivery systems
From Scouting to Foursquare, badges have been used to motivate, commemorate, and engage. Within our technology-rich world, we have a sea of knowledge readily available at the tap of a button. Through digital badging, we can leverage the proven success of (real-world) badges to foster lifelong learning in this connected age.
In this overview session, participants will explore the digital badging movement and how we can leverage it within our schools and communities to foster lifelong learning.
