SC204 Badging 21st-century Skills

1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, October 1

Expo Hall: Learning Media Studio Stage

Today’s students are expected to gain skills and abilities both in curricular and co-curricular areas. In formal curricula, students earn grades for their achievements. But how are students acknowledged for things like teamwork, creativity, leadership, and other 21st-century skills? This session is a case study in process. During this session, you’ll learn about Aurora Public Schools’ badge system, which will reach more than 42,100 students. You’ll look at the design of the system and the individual badges within it, and you’ll learn about the implementation considerations and challenges that have popped up along the way.
