'Digital Badges' Would Represent Students' Skill Acquisition | Assess Group | Scoop.it
Initiatives seek to give students permanent online records for skills they have developed that they could then use when applying to college or for jobs.


KF:  The badges approach is especially suited to more open education strategies and begins to recognise that there are sytill areas that do no require formal accreditation.  I suspect the approach has a long way to go before mainstream adoption and will need to address some questions around "assurance of learning" if it is to be picked up more ubiquitiously.  I can see there being a system whereby even your employer can award badges that help you map your learning from experience and training.
