Teachers are finding ways to get creative when it comes to rewarding their students while distance learning. Whether you are full or part time distance learning, digital stickers could be what you are looking for! Digital stickers can be used on Google Classroom or SeeSaw. Learn how to use them, get some free digital stickers, and see how we make them below.
What are digital stickers?
Digital stickers are exactly that. They are a sticker that can be used digitally. Essentially, it is an image file that is placed on top of an activity or assignment as a way to reward them for a job well done.
Where can digital stickers be used?
Any platform that allows a person to add an image file can use digital stickers. Here is a list of the most common teaching and learning digital platforms that students are using today. All of these platforms do accept image files (aka digital stickers).
- Google Classroom
- Google Slides
- Google Docs
- Class Dojo
- Microsoft Teams
How do I attach a digital sticker to an assignment?
The video tutorial above demonstrates how to add a digital sticker on a Google Slides activity but the process to adding it to other platforms is very similar. Find the button that allows you to add an image and follow the same steps as the video shows to assign a digital sticker to a student’s work.
Digital Brag Tags vs. Digital Stickers
Are you wondering what the difference is between a digital brag tag and a digital sticker? To be honest, there is no difference! A lot of teachers that follow our page have used brag tags over the years. As the challenges of distance learning and COVID safety regulations fell upon us, we were asked how to use brag tags without having to print them. That was when we thought of the idea of turning brag tags into digital brag tags or digital stickers.
