Ferrante (Conference Center)
Dr. Mary Ann Bell, Professor of Library Science/, Department of Library Science, Sam Houston State University
Dr. Holly Weimar, Associate Professor/Chair, Department of Library Science, Sam Houston State University Library Science Department

Do you yearn for a free and fun way to provide incentives for students and encourage positive work habits? Do you wish you could reward good citizenship and foster creativity and work that goes beyond the expected? Online badging is for you! This motivational practice is growing in popularity with students and educators at all levels. Badges are already in use with commercial applications such as Edmodo and Dojo, but creating your own can be even more fun and rewarding. And it’s free! Bell and Weimar share their firsthand experiences with their students and also those of K–12 educators. They will offer steps for starting up a system and then maintaining it efficiently and effectively. Attendees leave the session with specific ideas that will help make such a program successful and effective.
