Presentation Title: Radically Learner-Centered: Badges at P2PU
Presentation Description: How can your students use Badges in the classroom? P2PU has built a learner-centered platform for your classroom community to give feedback to each other and recognize skills.
Peer 2 Peer University has a different take on measurement: we see assessment and learning as one loop, with peers constantly giving feedback to each other and learning in that process.
As such, we’ve build a very different kind of assessment platform: our Badges enable feedback and conversations. This presentation will walk through our platform and present a use case in how Youth Voices Summer Program used Badges for learners to assess each other.
