Can Digital Badges Motivate Learners? A Framer Looks At Badges | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

More broadly, a variety of means of demonstrating, validating, and assessing a person’s accomplishments are already becoming part of the ecology of the web, but (1) they are mostly distributed across a range of different websites, and (2) much of that distribution is outside of any given person’s control. The idea here is to create a badge infrastructure and system in which a student/person can consolidate and display their accomplishments in one place (what Mozilla calls a “badges backpack”). It’s described as a way for a person to tell a story about themselves in a visual, and more powerful, way than a traditional resume or CV could ever do.
