How Digital Badge IT Programmes Work

RUNNING A DIGITAL BADGE PROGRAMME

– Each digital badge programme is assigned a unique and personalised webspace.

 

– Programme leaders and children and young people who will be engaging in the project are registered on the webspace and a username and password are issued.

 

– Programme leaders can decide which part of the webspace to make private (to be viewed by members only) and public.

 

– Programme activities begin. See individual programmes to see information about who can deliver a Digital Badge IT programme.

AWARDING DIGITAL BADGES TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Digital badges are awarded to children and young people by programme leaders to reward participation or completion of a programme activity or task.

 

Using their unique username and ID, children and young people can log into the programme digital badge webspace to track which badges they have achieved.

 

Digital badges can be awarded on the digital badge webspace by programme leaders, via a simple dashboard system or unlocked by children and young people by:

 

– entering a digital badge unlock code.

 

– completing steps / uploading activity evidence  – which will automatically award digital badges to users.

CALENDAR AND LEADERBOARD

Each digital badge webspace has it’s own calendar of events and digital badge leaderboard.

MEDIA GALLERY

Each digital badge webspace has it’s own media gallery where logged in users can view artwork, media and blogs.
