gepost bericht: I have written a blog post demonstrating a possible use of a Badge System for young learners http://www.ictsteps.com/?p=994 It's hypothetical but I can see no reason why such a system cannot be used within a school, which is why I am going to introduce it as part of teaching and learning in the Information Communications Technology area in my school. The children can work towards gaining a badge in various areas of their learning and also be awarded badges by their peers in recognition of additional skills.
