promote education

I hope to use it to promote education. I think I will use it in different areas such as social awareness, quality of education, identification of the frameworks of open education, principles of self-promotion, motivation of activities.

We're using digital badges as an option for teachers to demonstrate their knowledge while providing for a flexible learning environment.

In our district, we've done training on blended learning, competency-based education, and student demonstrations of mastery, but had not been able to convince professional developers of the importance of providing these options for teachers as well.

Initially, we started with discussing the concept of digital badges, with teachers enthusiastically (after they got going) seeking to complete our "test" badge.  Since this proof of concept, we've started to convert some of our "sit and get" sessions into self-paced (and still compensated) professional development options.  We launch district-wide in a few weeks, and so far, the response has been amazing!

I want to use badges for teacher PD to help motivate and engage teachers

I would like to use badges at my school site for technology PD and with my PBIS team to help motivate grade 7 teachers. In terms of students, I would like to get more into gamification and use badges. I'm interested in open badges that are transferable and will hold value to the use.

I'm curious if badging could be a way to increase feedback loop for teachers previously trained. Incentivizing sharing what they do.

Professional Development

I'm excited to use this with my teachers to motivate them, and/or teach them to use this in their classrooms!

Love the idea of using badges in education!

Love the idea of using badges in education for both PD and student achievement. Actually created proof of concept and wrote about it here in 2011:

Professional Development Badges

We have a weekly Tech Café for teachers to attend as needed. It's a coffee shop type setting at the district office where teachers can come and collaborate and integrate. Two SLAMs are offered each week as well. We'd like to offer badges for attendance, skills learned, SLAM presentation etc.

Motivation for PD and Health

I am hoping that my colleagues will find this motivating to participate BOTH in PD and health challenges.

How I use badges...

When I was in the classroom, I would use badges via Edmodo within my student groups.

I am hoping that we can incorporate them into our Professional Development for teachers. There is a lot of push back due to time.

The teachers at my site are quick to disregard training because they think it is a waste of time. I think by offering more online professional development that offer an incentive and has a little bit of a competitive spirit, they might be more likely to engage in it.
