DEMONSTRATING STUDENT GROWTH WITH DIGITAL BADGES

 

NYSCATE Session - November 22, 8:00 am

 

What progress have your students made this year? Since many schools started the year by playing catch-up, test scores may not be the best indicators. Richer Picture's Digital Badges and Portfolios demonstrate student growth across the curriculum and celebrate each milestone that students achieve.

 

At our NYSCATE session, we will walk through the strategies for defining and implementing badges and portfolios in three steps:

  • First, you'll define badges that represent your vision of a graduate (focusing on both the academic and non-academic skills you expect of all students).
  • Second, you'll learn how to do a "task review," where you analyze your existing classroom assignments (and home learning activities) and make sure they are portfolio-worthy.
  • Third, you'll create "tours," where students display their best work to various audiences, ranging from parents and administrators to employers and college admissions.

 

We hope you join us for our NYSCATE session on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 8 am. If you can't make it, please fill out the form on this page. We'll be glad to chat with you!
