What are the learning targets?
What kind of products will evidence learning?
What kinds of activities and experiences will support
mastery learning?
Bonus: instantly reflective! How can I *teach* these
concepts to ensure learning?

Digital badge assessments can align well with the idea of
critically looking at learning and mastery of concepts can
be evidenced

Digital badges can guide or scaffold learning, leading to
greater understanding

Through performance activities, learning is made
“visible”

Digital Badges
Badge Design:
• Learning trajectory with increasing cognitive difficulty
• Standards alignment
• Performance assessment / suggested activities to demonstrate
content mastery
• Resources and ideas


Data Hacker Badge Track
The focus of this badge series is: “learner as
innovative problem solver.” “Design” is
viewed as a cyclical process, during which the
learner is immersed in “design thinking:”
 defines a problem or a challenge;


seeks information to inform a design solution (previous
research and needs analysis);

proposes a potential solution;

communicates outcomes, including reflections/
recommendations on how to improve or refine the design for
another iteration of design cycle.
