    29. 29. Future Design Iterations • Design of strategy and integration level badges. • Creating pathways for people to earn badges not in our classes, particularly inservice teachers. • Scaling assessment. • Maintaining accuracy of rubrics and tutorials as tools evolve and change. • Creating a smart dashboard management tool for people to log in and track their progression on badges (ala Khan Academy).
    30. 30. Future Research Considerations • Student motivation. How many students will go above and beyond to earn badges? extra badges? Post-class badges? • How useful can this be for teacher inservice professional development? Does it present a solution that will be useful to teachers? • Principal/employer perceptions
