Badges for Teachers in PowerSchool

I'm playing around with badging.  Is it possible to award badges to teachers in our domain, or are badges strickly for students? 

 

I have some teachers listed as students in my class, but there is no button to add a badge to their profile. 

 

Thanks,

Stacy

Re: Badges for Teachers in PowerSchool

This is a great question!

 

Currently, badges can be assigned to students.  If a teacher is a student in a class, then the teacher can receive a badge in that class.

 

I have submitted a feature request to the PowerSchool Product team on your behalf to enable a feature that will allow badges for Teachers. We thank you for your suggestions to improve PowerSchool Learning for all users.

How can you add teachers to a class?  I'd like to also be able to assign badges and make announcements to teachers using the LMS.  THANKS!

Hi @nsarver,

 

Thank you for reaching out for assistance through the Community!  Currently, badges can be assigned to students.  If a teacher is a student in a class, then the teacher can receive a badge in that class.  I provided a link below that will provide further instruction on how to add a teacher to a class.

Re: Badges for Teachers in PowerSchool

It's definitely a start!!  I'm a tech coach in our district and I would love to be able to add teachers (giving them a similar role to students), so that I can use the LMS to send them announcements, assign badges for more PD related topics, create a wiki for them to collaborate on, etc.
