Apps for the 12 Days of Christmas - ClassBadges

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!


ClassBadges is a free, online tool that allows teachers to reward/award students with virtual and customizable badges for their accomplishments.  Badges can be customized for behavior, academic success, mastery of content, etc.  Currently you need to request an invite to use the service.  This invite provides a Class Code that you use to create accounts for students so that they can track the badges that they have received.

ClassBadges has over 100 designed badges to choose from, thus allowing teachers to create a unique opportunity for their students.  The badges provide a great way for students to track and motivate students as the work on large projects or study for exams.  I can see this working successfully in elementary and middle school.  I am not sure about the impacts in the high school classroom.  For more information, see the video below.
