Illuminate. Differentiate. Measure. Celebrate. Connect.
A badge is a validated display of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest that can be earned in any learning environment. Badges can represent traditional academic achievement or the acquisition of skills such as collaboration, teamwork, leadership, and other skills. They can be earned by people of all ages, from kindergartners on up, and they can make any notable accomplishments visible to anyone and everyone, including potential employers, teachers, and peer communities.
Digital Badges are a fun and meaningful way to demonstrate specific areas of knowledge and skill. Read more about our team’s badging initiatives here…
