My students are in their final few weeks of school and they are on fire to earn as many of our new edtech badges as possible before we break for summer.
The edtech badges program in our elementary school leverages our Atomic Learning account and the ideals of a flipped classroom and gamification to get our students earning everything from simple word processing badges to more complicated audio engineering and video game design badges.
There has been a lot of talk about student engagement, trust me, not an issue in my school. The problem here is kids wanting, no begging, to work on their badges over the summer.
Should I allow it or not?
