It’s getting that time of year when lots of teachers give-out awards and certificates, and thought that another “The Best…” list would be helpful.

Whenever I give out these kinds of awards to my students, in a nod to what Alfie Kohn says about rewards in his book “Punished By Rewards” (though I’m not a total believer in his perspective), I don’t tell them in advance what they awards are for and make sure that everybody gets one. I also think strategically about which students might like getting serious certificates, and which ones would better appreciate funny ones.

Here are my picks for The Best Ways To Make Awards & Certificates Online:

The Autocrat Add-on: Easily Generate Certificates, Progress Reports, and More is from TechNotes.

Create certificates at Templated.

Suggestions and feedback, as always, are welcome.
