This webinar recording is part of the Spring 2017 ISTE Professional Learning Series. It aired on April 26, 2017 at 4 Pacific, 7 Eastern.

Think about what the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts have been doing all along, recognizing mastery and achievement with badges. Teachers can do the same by recognizing student accomplishments and mastery with badges. Badges go beyond grades because they are given out at the teacher’s discretion for more than just academic achievement. Students work toward completing different badges to show mastery of a concept, standard or skill.

Presented by the ISTE Literacy Network.
