There's a Badge for That!
- During your end of year conference do you find yourself struggling to explain all that you learned during the past school year?
- Do you sometimes find it hard to prove that you learned a new skill and that you have applied it in your work?
- Have you ever been super excited about something new you learned, and the paper certificate you received just did not embody your excitement or your learning?
Digital Badges can help address all of these issues!
Tx DHH Learning Bites - Purpose

What does this look like in action for me?
For any learning experience, our learning is equal to our effort. In order for us to grow from our learning, we need to take the time to pause and reflect. How does our new learning fit in to what we already know and do?
Each of you reading this has a different role, with different responsibilities. Think about what you learned today through the lens of your particular role, as well as your personal and professional learning needs. This is an important part of the learning process!
Take the time to think about a new idea you learned, a new approach you want to try, or a new skill you have acquired. Consider how to put your new insights, skills, and abilities to work! That's where the real learning happens.
