STELAR Webinar: Digital Badging

Date: 

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
Free Online Event

Join the STEM Learning and Research Center at EDC (STELAR) from 3:00-4:00 pm ET as they explore the use of digital badges in two National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) projects! Like traditional merit badges, digital badges are earned by learning new skills, but unlike their embroidered counterparts, each digital badge contains an electronic record of the specific competencies that have been mastered. During this webinar, EDC's Jim Diamond will discuss the potential for digital badge systems to be alternative credentialing methods.
