Together with April Moore and Kelly Bruce from the Corona-Norco USD, we will be speaking at the Association of California School Administrators Leadership Summit. The description of our Practice Session on, “Launching Digital Badges to Motivate 21st Century Learners” is below.
This interactive workshop will briefly highlight a district’s use of digital badges to motivate students to become college and career ready and will provide a synopsis of the research of motivational theories as they apply to the digital badging movement. Participants will break into small groups and engage in a process to develop their own digital badges. Facilitators will conduct a share out session capturing ideas generated for uses of students’ digital badges. Participants will receive promotional materials, launch kits, access to an open source digital badge portal, and the opportunity to join an educator digital badge usergroup.
We’re looking forward to sharing the outstanding work the Corona-Norco USD has done in designing the Passport to Success: College and Career Readiness system with other school districts. If you’re going to be at the conference, come say hello to us!
