The struggle is real.

Your teachers have boundless tools available to supplement their chosen instructional approach. Your administrators have all the performance data and student trends they need to make better decisions. Everyone who contributes to the organization has at least one process he or she could make more efficient through automation.
 
And yet, it remains exceedingly difficult to get the buy-in you need to get the most out of the technology at your disposal, let alone adopt anything new or different.
 
Digital badging represents the happy marriage of gamification and positive behavior recognition. There's a reason it's looking more and more like the future of professional development is finally here. In this first edition of the EdTech Playbook series, we'll offer up some ideas and resources to help you get your badging program off the ground.

Free Designs

If you've made it this far, we'd hate for you to get hung up on the design aspect of digital badges. We took the nine badges featured in the infographic above and created a downloadable package for your convenience. This .zip media kit features a generic design for each, as well as three ranked badges for those who prefer to measure varying proficiency benchmarks.
