The ten badges attached to this resource are from the first month and a half of our weekly self-assessment practice. Each Friday we badge what we have learned. To begin, we grab our journals and write about the learning that sticks out to us from the last week. Then we pick the pieces of learning that seem most powerful or fun to each of us. These are the pieces of learning that we will badge. We make 2-3 design sketches per badge and then pick our favorite designs to make.
Most of us use digital tools to make our badges; those of us who draw take digital pictures of our badges to upload to our computers. Some of us use piq, an online pixel art editor. Some of us have begun using other editors, like Acorn or Paintrbush, as well. We share a Bamboo Create tablet - we could use more, but don't need them. It doesn't cost anything to badge.
