The Saskatchewan School Library Association's Digital Fluency Badges provides a professional learning opportunity in which participants earn digital badges through learning about technology tools and applications to apply to teaching practices.
Digital badges offer participants the opportunity to pave their personal learning pathways and leverage the potential for mastering digital age skills, or digital fluency, embodied in the ISTE Standards and Saskatchewan’s Technology in Education Framework.
The Digital Fluency Badges professional learning opportunity is free to all SSLA members. It is $10 for non-members and $100 for institutions (participants to a maximum of 50 and a free annual membership). The poster can be distributed to all interested parties.
