Increasingly significant confirmation of knowledge and skills

As the most modern school in the region, Savremena provides its students with a way to acquire a high level of knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the 21st century. Firmly believing that every child is entitled to quality education, Savremena has provided further benefits for the students – the option of attending additional courses through an interactive online learning platform.

Relying on the latest international developments in education, we prepare our students to firmly step into the world of tomorrow equipped with the right knowledge and skills.

Through these courses, adequate for their age, Savremena’s students will build new and expand existing knowledge in the realms of English, programming, image editing, mathematics and internet and computing fundamentals, and acquire quite valuable digital credentials. And the process is sure to be fun, too, because at Savremena, learning is truly different, interactive and entertaining. 

What are digital badges exactly and why are they so valued in Serbia and abroad now?

According to the global body in charge of digital badges – IMS Global Consortium, a digital badge is a “a digital record of achievement – a verifiable credential that describes specific skills demonstrated by an individual and often includes actual evidence used to evaluate the individual’s achievement”.

Simply put: a digital badge is a testimony of acquired knowledge and skills, and, as a result of the application of blockchain technology, each badge of this type contains a readable metadata set that allows it to be verified. This metadata provides information on the identity of the badge holder, who issued it, what criteria were met, the duration of the certificate, and other relevant information.

Digital badges as a 21st century need

As a part of its lifelong learning agenda, the European Union has emphasised the development of digital skills among the citizens, to provide everyone with opportunities to contribute to the economic development and the digital green transition. From the first steps on the educational path, the individual is encouraged to enrich the existing and adopt new knowledge and skills throughout their professional career and provide an adequate response to 21st century work dynamics and all the changes in knowledge, skills and work positions that the contemporary world brings along.

In addition to the traditional forms of certification of educational achievements and the gained experience in the form of diplomas, curricula and portfolios, the possession of digital badges is becoming increasingly necessary when it comes to the adequate competencies when looking for work.

In the digital world, this type of certification is becoming more and more important in the academic and professional career of an individual, and an increasingly relevant consideration for potential employers.I am text block.

Digital certificate as means for students to stand out

In the academic and professional world, a diploma is highly valued, but the key lies in the possession of additional knowledge and skills. Digital badges are the result of the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies in education, and easily verifiable proof that the individual has additional competencies.

A great number of renowned educational institutions promote digital badges and their value, as the prevalent opinion, globally, is becoming that digital badges enrich not only a person’s portfolio, but also their personality, and serve as a confirmation of a comprehensive education. Individuals who hold them have better chances of being accepted into the desired university or get a job they have applied for.

To help provide the students with the best international education with prestigious competencies relevant for further education, Primary School Savremena has additionally developed an innovative online platform for modern kids, where they can choose among additional courses in accordance with their own interests.
