Floyd Pentlin's curator insight, December 13, 2013 8:20 AM

To date, Fleming has laid out very specific skill sets for which teachers at her school can earn badges. They include becoming proficient in WeVideo, an online video editor, ThingLink, a graphics generator, and AnswerGarden, a polling tool, along with Wordle, a word cloud program, and QR Code Generator. Fleming now adds a new badge “each week or so,” she says, and she thinks carefully about what skills they will cover. She wants to be sure that the apps she recommends teachers learn will also be useful to students.
