Free On-Demand ASCD Archived Webinar with David Niguidula
Duration: 1 hour, 3 minutes
Educators are being pulled in two different directions: We want every student to achieve high standards; at the same time, we also want all students to be prepared for their own individual paths. How can we possibly do both? Digital badges offer an exciting strategy for bringing these initiatives together so that your school can work toward mastery-based teaching and personalize each student’s learning. Badges offer an opportunity for students to demonstrate the skills and knowledge that fulfill state requirements and also to pursue their personal pathways and interests.
In this webinar, David Niguidula discussed the essential questions from his new book Demonstrating Student Mastery with Digital Badges and Portfolios, including
- Setting the Vision: What do we want our students to know and be able to do?
- Defining Badges: How do we define the badges that are required for all students? How can students create personal badges that reflect their interests?
- Portfolio-Worthy Tasks and Projects: How do students earn those badges?
- Culture: How do digital badges support initiatives that are already occurring at your school?
