Individuals with special needs struggle to graduate from high school and earn a diploma, much less pursue higher education or gain meaningful employment. Sometimes, there is a skills gap between the desired career and the student’s training. Many times, though, the problem is also a communication gap. During the edWebinar “Digital Badge Credentials: Preparing Students with Special Needs for Employment,” the presenters discussed how and why digital badges can help students validate their training and verify their credentials with prospective employers.

Innovators in education shared their expertise on preparing students to be ready for the working world in a recent edWebinar.

“If we don’t have enough time or resources to do everything we’re asked to do, or want to do in the classroom, what should we do?” Kevin Baird, Chairman of the Board at the nonprofit Center for College & Career Readiness, asked. With limited time and resources, teachers often have to prioritize what goes on in their classrooms. In “Yes They Can: The Five Highest Impact Priority Practices for Classrooms,” hosted by edWeb.net and sponsored by The Center for College & Career Readiness, Kevin delved into the top five critical classroom practices.
Students retain less than 10% of what they read alone, but 75% of what they practice by doing. The idea of a “makerspace” has captured imaginations as we consider how we enable student learning through creative projects.
