How Digital Badge IT Programmes Work

RUNNING A DIGITAL BADGE PROGRAMME

Programmes can be delivered by school or organisation staff (using the provided resources) – or by specialist Digital Badge IT programme leaders.

 

Each digital badge programme / project is assigned a unique and personalised webspace. We like to call them digi-spaces, because we think sounds cooler!

 

Programme leaders are granted free access to printable workbooks and resources to support the running of the programme. Programme resources are also available to purchase (without committing to buying an online system) in our shop.

 

Programme leaders and children & young people, who will be engaging in the project, are registered on the digi-space and a username and password are issued.

 

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

AWARDING DIGITAL BADGES TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

There are 7 different Digital Badge IT programmes – supporting Curriculum Enrichment or Extra-Curricular activities.

As children and young people participate in activities or complete set tasks, achievement badges are awarded online by programme leaders or unlocked by children themselves.

Using a secure user ID and password, children can log into the digi-space to enter badge unlock codes, track which badges they have achieved, submit badge evidence and complete interactive quizzes. Children are also awarded DIGI-points for each digital badge unlocked.

Each digital badge digi-space has it’s own media gallery, blog, calendar of events and digital badge leaderboard.
