When 2 million students started using Clever Badges to log in to their digital learning software, on came a flurry of creative ideas to use, organize, and jazz up this fun tool in classrooms. From Badge crowns to magnetic organizers, teachers are full of ideas on how to make Badges delightful in their classrooms. We hope these examples inspire a Badge-decorating party or tech support buddy system in your classroom.
Pro tip: Always cover the square code when publicly sharing photos of Badges to keep students’ logins secure.
1. Log in like royalty
Glue Badges onto a colorful, paper headband like @LukeTheTeacher.
2. Emoji-fy it
Use avatars or emojis to personalize each student’s Clever Badge like Kayla from Bates Elementary School. (Hint: Press play to watch the Badge magic.)
By the way, we’ve noticed many teachers using binder rings to keep their Badges organized. Brilliant idea!
3. Fold in some fun
Tape Badges to each student’s folder as seen at Jessamine County Schools.
4. Make it stick with magnets
Use a magnet wall to store Badges, like the students at Warwick Valley CSD.
5. Use the buddy system
Pair older students with young grades for tech training and support.
6. Hang them up
Keep Badges safe and central with a hanging organizer.
Incredible right? Which idea will you take back to your classroom?
Not only are Badges a fun way to log in, but it’s also a time-saving tool. In fact, teachers saved 100,000 instructional hours last school year when they switched from pesky passwords to logging in with Clever Badges.
