Magic Digital Badges is a Google Drive add-on that lets you create and assign digital badges to your students. You can use images saved in your Google Drive to create various types of badges. The way it works is simple and easy: first you need to create a Google Drive folder where you store badges you create then head over to Google Sheets and launch the add-on then follow these instructions.
Once you complete the set up, Google Sheet will automatically award badges to selected students. Also, “Digital Badges will automatically create and share a Google Drive folder with the students that will be owned by you. These folders are where copies of the electronic Digital Badges will be placed for the relevant student. Students can then access their personal Digital Badges folder to see which badges have been awarded through Google Drive or their folder could be embedded into their own Google Sites/Digital Portfolio for easy viewing. “
As a teacher, you also have the option to notify students via email of their assigned digital badges. Watch the tutorial below to learn more about how Magic Digital Badges work.
