Angela Elkordy

Doctoral Candidate

Eastern Michigan University,

Leadership and Counseling Dept.

workshop objectives

Session learning targets:

    • The concept of “digital badges”
    • Digital badges, learning and assessment
    • Principles for designing effective badges and badge systems
    • Teaching practices & digital badges
    • Digital badge design overview
    • Additional resources
Workshop Objectives
types of badges

Participation -- you attended! (yay!)

  • Social capital – mentoring, sharing, collaboration
  • Incremental -- series of knowledge, skills, or competencies (formative feedback)
  • Achievement – series of knowledge, skills, or competencies to task mastery (summary feedback)
Types of badges
digital badges of learning

evidence-based;

  • acknowledge and communicate skills;
  • flexible (even transcultural, embodying criteria important to communities of practice globally);
  • granular (very specific skills and knowledge sets can be targeted);
  • “common assessments.”
Digital badges“of” learning
digital badges for learning

Robust digital badge assessments :

  • Effectively communicate learning objectives and evidence of learning;
  • scaffold learning;
  • motivate learners;
  • empower learners to “own” their learning and results;
  • provide essential formative feedback;
  • communicate expectations widely;
  • reinforce and strengthen important metacognitive skills
  • can be used to recognize, assess and communicate a wide variety of skills;
  • add value and transparency in learning environments;
  • differentiate.
Digital badges“for” learning
how can i use digital badges contexts

Learning targets;

  • Behavioral targets;
  • Socio-emotional targets;
  • Skill based targets;
  • Proficiency (or Mastery) targets;
How can I use digital badges? (contexts)
how can i use digital badges goals strategies

Motivation targets;

  • Measure “new” skills;
  • Differentiate instruction;
  • Communicate expectations;
  • Provide essential formative feedback
  • Increase learners’ metacognitive skills and self-efficacy
  • Share ideas!

Track student learning over time
digital badge design essential elements

Objectives

  • Learning targets
  • Badge skills
  • Badge criteria (performance tasks)
  • Evidence of learning
  • Alignment to standards (if applicable)
  • Rubric (optional)
  • Learning activities (optional)
  • Badge image (visual design)
Digital Badge Design: Essential Elements
design for understanding

Understanding by Design

    • What 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
1 design badge elements

The Bare Minimum:

    • Badge skills
    • Badge criteria (performance tasks)
    • Evidence of learning (products)
    • Badge image (visual design)
