Welcome to the LINC-ED Digital Badging guide.
This resource is designed to support school leaders with designing and implementing digital badges. It shows what digital badging pages can look like and gives an example of the information LINC-ED requires for each badge to be set up.
Digital badging is a great way to help students collect evidence and track their progress towards a skill or goal. This feature can be built into your LINC-ED site.
Once badges are set up, students access these through their student account and upload evidence to demonstrate how they have met each criteria. When a student has completed the criteria, their teacher can view this then award the badge. When the badge is awarded, it shows as coloured on their student page and the student receives an email. If the Badges page is visible to parents, the student can then share their achievement with their family.
If a student has an account with Mozilla backpack they can add this digital badge to their backpack.
At LINC-ED, it is our goal to continually provide users with a positive experience. If you find our resources particularly helpful or have any suggestions for areas for enhancement, we ask you to let us know through the Help function within your site.
