The Five Points of Technology and Education: We need more stinkin’ badges (or, how to increase student participation without using grades as a reward)

This was a great badge summary! Badges work well into PBIS strategies, as well. We give out tickets at my high school that can be redeemed for stuff, but I wonder if badges would be cheaper (most of the rewards cost the school something) and perhaps even more “meaningful” because peers will know WHY a student got that badge instead of the generic tickets we hand out.

If you use Edmodo or Khan Academy, badges and achievements are built right in, so you wouldn’t even need a new service.
