Digital Fluency Badges

Just added more badges to Saskatchewan School Library Association (SSLA)’s Digital Fluency Badges.70 different badges are available! In other words, 70 digital tools are awaiting for you to add to your repertoire.

I created this professional learning opportunity to allow busy educators to receive professional development when it is needed. Not only is the professional learning opportunity available anytime, anywhere - but it is customized to the learner. The learners chooses the digital tools and applications of interest or student need.

Each digital tool or application is described through text and supplemented with a video. Educational uses are detailed to help the learner visualized the digital tool's or application's possibilities. The digital tools and applications are categorized into broad categories so learners can search for what they want the technology to do, rather than search through an endless list.

The Saskatchewan School Library Association (SSLA)’s Digital Fluency Badges provide a professional learning opportunity in which learners earn digital badges through learning about technology tools and applications, and then apply the learnings purposefully to teaching practices.

Digital badges offer learners the opportunity to pave their personal learning pathways and leverage the potential for mastering digital age skills embodied in the ISTE Standards.

The current list of tools and apps have been detailed on EduClipper - a great curation tool featured as one of the Saskatchewan School Library Association (SSLA)’s Digital Fluency Badges.
