Personalized Pathways to Mastery with Digital Badges

Speaker: David Niguidula, Ed. D.

8:15 - 9:45 AM, Sunday March 17th
Room W185d, Level 1, McCormick Place West

How do schools personalize learning while helping all students achieve mastery?

Digital badges help ensure that all students are achieving proficiency while showing who they are as individual learners. Student digital badges represent the whole child, ranging from reading and math skills to programming, the arts, and habits of mind.

To earn badges, students collect their best work from classroom assignments or online projects. Students then combine badges into digital portfolios, showing evidence of their growth over time. In this session, you'll participate in badge-definition exercises that help students demonstrate both curriculum requirements and their personal interests.

We'll also examine strategies that will help your school bring badges to life, including linking badges to competencies, creating individual learning plans, personalizing quests and project-based learning, and using badges for college admissions and career readiness.
