Aurora Public Schools Showcases How Digital Badging is Revolutionizing Education in Digital Badge Summit

Hundreds of digital badge leaders, practitioners and enthusiasts from across the globe are joining forces at the 2016 Digital Badge Summit in Aurora, Colorado. The Badge Summit is the first of its kind and will offer educators a look at how digital badging can help students pursue more college and career opportunities.

Aurora Public Schools students have been earning digital badges through an innovative credentialing program, which recognizes assets and opens doors. Digital credentials can help students communicate what they know and are able to do. Click here for more information about digital badging.

Through partnerships with employers, Aurora Public Schools leaders hope this initiative will help ensure that graduates gain the “real-world” skills necessary to succeed in the workforce.

Preparing students for college and career is a main focus of the district’s strategic plan APS 2020: Shaping the Future.
