Badges for Students and Teachers at HWDSB Using Brightspace Awards

1 hour

Paul Hatala, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board


Badges are often used to award recognition to students or participants who have demonstrated mastery of a soft-skill that isn’t linked to a curriculum expectation, but still considered a valuable skill that is worth identifying and rewarding. Brightspace now offers the ability to create and award Mozilla Backpack badges for learners. The Hamilton-Wentworth District School board is using badges to recognize skills attained by both staff and students within the organization for a variety of purposes. During this webinar we will explore the philosophy behind badging, how Brightspace facilitates badging within the Learning Environment and how the HWDSB is using badging to recognize and motivate learners within the organization.
