I love earning badges and learning more about technology in the classroom to better support our educators, but I was wondering if the lovely people at Formative could give us a little more insight as to how they envision those with badges to use their knowledge and new certifications to benefit the world of education (other than having a larger email signature than before)?
I created a site www.badgedtech.com that has all of the different edtech badges and accreditations. For me as a classroom teacher it has now allowed me to become an edtech coach out of the classroom and lead and drive change with technology.
I find this simply helps signal to others my level of knowledge of formative. This has sparked conversations with others who see it and ask me questions about how to use the software.
