Digital badges are a way to demonstrate the acquisition of specific skills or accomplishments, and can provide a great window into what students are learning in the library. The challenge is selecting the right platform and, with younger students, finding a way to appropriately manage and share these badges. My IdeaLab presentation will focus on self-created badges using Canva, an online design website, then sharing them with students and families through Seesaw, a private, free, digital portfolio. Students are able to feel a sense of accomplishment at what they've learned, and parents get to see some of the innovative and engaging learning happening in the library through the badges and their descriptions.
