What can K-12 educators learn from those who have built badge systems about designing and implementing for classroom or blended learning environments?


This panel discussion looks at real badge systems and their implementation. Educators who have been through the badge design process will discuss their experience with content creation, badge design, technical integration, adoption, and the assessment thinking behind building a sustainable badge system. Panelists will share lessons learned and provide recommendations for those interested in piloting or implementing a badge system of their own.


Panelists include grantee projects from the Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition, funded by the MacArthur Foundation and administered by HASTAC, in partnership with the Mozilla Foundation. Badges for Lifelong Learning grantees received their awards at the DML Conference and will be in advanced stages of deployment by March 2013.
