Starting winter 2016, San Diego Unified will begin awarding achievement by issuing digital badges. Digital badges are virtual tokens issued as recognition of a skill, or behavior demonstrated, or an achievement a student has earned.
Electronic badges are popular among young adults, used by industry, and something we believe will support students as they enter the post-secondary world of college and career. Digital badges are a way to display what students can do, as well as what they know. These badges can be collected over time and shared on social media and through resumes. Our badging system is supported by UCSD Extension and other local business partners.
