Leading adult education through support for and the effective application of technology.

Digital Badges in Adult Education (1)


Digital badges are being used by educational institutions to recognize learner’s skills, experiences, and knowledge. This workshop will examine the potential of digital badging in adult education. Along with a definition of "digital badging" a discussion of research that supports badging will also be discussed. Attendees will learn how to create, award, collect, and share digital badges they and their learners earn. There will also be open discussions on using badging as part of an LMS (like Moodle) and what digital badges could mean to learners as they prepare to transition to college or career.

Prerequisites: Basic computer and internet skills.
