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 Slide 30 Sample badge design Slide 31 Design Tools Slide 32 Badges Examples & Ideas Slide 33 Opportunity to participate in award winning research Grades 6-12 Slide 34 Digital Badges Badge Design: Learning trajectory with increasing cognitive difficulty Standards alignment Performance assessment / suggested activities to demonstrate content mastery Resources and ideas Slide 35 This digital badge trajectory scaffolds learning in basic data and statistical concepts for middle and high school age learners. It is designed to be used in a variety of content areas in addition to science and math. 4 levels plus one challenge level Aligned with Next Generation Science Standard, Practice: Analyzing and Interpreting Data Aligned with CCSS Math (Data and Statistics, for grades 6-10) Also, alignment with NETS-S and P21 Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of Learning Suitable for grades 6 and up (meets 6-8 standards) Data Whiz Badge Track Slide 36 This digital badge trajectory scaffolds intermediate and advanced learning in data and statistical concepts for middle and high school age learners. It is designed to be used in a variety of content areas in addition to science and math. 4 levels plus one challenge level ; Aligned with Next Generation Science Standard, Practice: Analyzing and Interpreting Data Aligned with CCSS Math (Data and Statistics, for grades 8-10) Also, alignment with NETS-S and P21 Includes: Learning Targets, Badge Requirements, Performance Tasks, Evidence of Learning Suitable for grades 8-12 and up (meets 9-12 standards) Data Hacker Badge Track Slide 37 The focus of this badge series is: learner as innovative problem solver. Design is viewed as a cyclical process, during which the learner is immersed in design thinking: defines a problem or a challenge; seeks information to inform a design solution (previous research and needs analysis); proposes a potential solution; communicates outcomes, including reflections/ recommendations on how to improve or refine the design for another iteration of design cycle.
