From the Session:

We took time to work in small groups to create a badge with a student in mind.  Start with the students and the learning outcomes!  One group created a badge called the “RELEARN” badge for a student who is willing to relearn a concept and demonstrate mastery.  I especially love this idea–very modern learning.  Afterall, we are all evolving and relearning.  By “failing forward” we reach higher levels of achievement.  And this badge frames “relearning” as a reward and something to covet and strive for as a learner.
