Gear Up for #ISTELive24 with Edge•U Badges!

It’s spectacular SUMMERTIME for educators everywhere, and here at Edge•U Badges, we’re excited to share some amazing things planned for you at the upcoming #ISTELive24 conference in Denver, Colorado June 24-26.

The EPIC Edge•U Scavenger Hunt starts on Monday, 6/24 when the EXPO Hall opens!

Keep an eye on our X account @edgeubadges for the release of the partners that are part of the scavenger hunt! If you collect all the stickers, you’ll be entered to win a free year of Edge•U Badges! You can get your scavenger hunt card at booth 933 on Monday.

Wait, who are we?

Edge•U is your one-stop hub (thanks for the perfect title, @farmerfaubs!) for professional development (PD) on demand.

As educators, we all know the drill: constant learning, daily pivots, and the need for practical tools and strategies to navigate it all. But let’s not forget the importance of a supportive community! That’s where you and amazing initiatives like the #eduguardians from @eduguardian5 come in. 

In order to close that digital equity divide, let’s continue to come together and focus on our confidence in our practice and giving our students the resources they need for success!

What is Edge•U Badges?

Edge•U Badges is an instructional learning system designed by former teachers, for teachers, aimed at providing meaningful resources to directly impact student success. Edge•U Badges directly impacts student learning through microcredentials (badges), each crafted to support educators in all areas of technology-based learning. With over 280+ badges, the opportunities for expanding your PD are unlimited!

Here’s what sets Edge•U Badges apart:

  • Choice, not mandates: We don’t dictate how you implement what you learn. You choose what works best for your unique classroom environment.
  • Supportive feedback: Submit your evidence, and we’ll provide constructive feedback to help you elevate your success and impact on your students.
  • Badges by educators, for educators: Our badges are designed by the talented instructional design coaches at @ForwardEdgeOH – real educators using these tools in the trenches, just like you!
  • Beyond the classroom: The learning doesn’t stop at the school door. These universally practical tools and strategies can be applied to your daily life as well!
