What progress have your students made this year? Since many schools started the year by playing catch-up, test scores may not be the best indicators. This session will show you how Digital Badges and Portfolios demonstrate student growth across the curriculum and celebrate each milestones that students achieve. In the session, we will walk through the strategies for defining and implementing badges and portfolios in three steps:

1. You’ll define badges that represent your vision of a graduate (focusing on both the academic and non-academic skills you expect of all students).

2. You’ll learn how to do an “task review,” where you analyze your existing classroom assignments (and home learning activities) and make sure they are portfolio-worthy.

3. You’ll create “tours,” where students display their best work to various audiences, ranging from parents and administrators to employers and college admissions.

Throughout, we’ll take your questions and discuss how you can adapt these techniques for use in your community.
