Below are some of the badges I created in openbadges.me. This is one of the free services that I found that you don't even have to sign up for. I may have entered my email in the beginning but don't remember.
|For joining my Google Classroom|
|Teachers will decide for this one|
When the kids finish the task I share the badge with them in our Google Apps account. This is a bit tricky since we do not have email set up for K-4. I have to email or tell the teacher to have the student check their account. The badge images are getting lost in their account.
Displaying badges: Eventually the kids will have sites or blogs they can display their badge. Right now on of my teachers created a google slide to display all their badges. I can save the slide with the badges as an image and display all the kids slides on the TV in the hallway.
- Decide on 10-15 badges to start with for the year.
- Try Classbadges.com
- Have students come up with ideas on how to earn badges.
- Have students create badges.
- Improve workflow - maybe a form for teachers to fill out or students to fill out once they have finished their project to earn a badge.
