Webinar: Open Badges and Learning: A Disruptive Technology for Education and Accreditation?

Webinar: Open Badges and Learning: A Disruptive Technology for Education and Accreditation? | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

According to some, there's a "badging movement" underway that has the potential to change the landscape of education. Learners will be accumulating "digital badges" that are not just icons representing something they have learned or mastered, but active links back to the criteria for earning the badge and perhaps the tool used to make the assessment and the work, project, or performance submitted as evidence.

 

Will established institutions of higher learning be willing and able to compete with other providers who are showing how solid their assessments are and providing evidence that their badge earners can perform? Will established reputations for quality crumble when criteria and assessments are public? How might this affect accreditation? Will there be standard badges representing important skills and people or organizations accredited to assess and award each? Who knows? The future seems hard to predict, but we should have a lively conversation about the possibilities.

Digital Media and Learning Competition Webinar: Badge Systems Models and Design | Wednesday, November 30, 2011 | HASTAC | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

During this live webinar for prospective Stage Two badge design applicants, we will delve deeper into the badge conversation and explore badge system design and development considerations. We will review different models of existing badge systems and discuss general guidelines and best practices. We will also walk prospective applicants through content, technological and team characteristics that should be considered when developing a badge system and putting together a proposal for Stage Two.

Considering the “Badges 101″ Webinar

The Open Badge Infrastructure is one attempt to address learning, skills and competencies that are currently either unrepresented or underrepresented in traditional, formal personal representation on resumes and CVs. Soft skills such as community-mindedness, peer interaction, and mentoring present great assessment opportunities that may result in some of the most important badges to arise from the ecosystem. But as it’s early on in this brand new system, we’ll have to see where value arises. It may surprise us all. And while the academic community has responded mightily to the idea of open badges, the target audience is much broader and consists of organizations, institutions, individuals, groups, etc.—ideally anyone who would like to offer and support representations of learning, achievements, skills, and competencies.

TODAY on HASTAC: Badges 101 Webinar | Monday, October 17 2011 @ 2pm EST | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

The Badges for Lifelong Learning Competitionhas launched a broad, open, critical, and constructive conversation about digital badges, visual representations of 21st century skills and achievements. We invite you to learn more about open badges and this Competition during a series of interactive webinars hosted by the Mozilla Foundation and the HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Digital Media & Learning Competition.

During our third live Badges 101 webinar, we will address questions about the basics of badges: What are badges? What are open badges? How can badges work for learners? We will also address additional questions about badges as submitted by webinar participants. Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing dml@hri.uci.edu and including "webinar question" in the subject line.

Badges 101 Webinar Follow-up - World of E's

Badges 101 Webinar Follow-up - World of E's | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

A driving principle behind the badge work is that we will use badges to capture a wide, granular range of learning so that the skill, competency, achievement, etc. is explicitly expressed through the badge, and of course that badge carries with it all of the information needed to understand the badge, including the criteria/assessment behind the badge and potentially even a link to the learner’s work as evidence (an optional piece of metadata). Thus badges move us away from a standardized, artificial system and start to lay the foundation for an authentic, personalized system that captures and continues to communicate the learning and skill development that occurred.

Designing Open Badges: How does Gamification Influence Motivation?

Designing Open Badges: How does Gamification Influence Motivation? | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

For this experiment to be successful, the badge systems that the DML Competition winners implement next year have to do a number of things at once. The first is pretty self evident: badges should only be earned after a learner completes a sufficiently rigorous curriculum developed by a trustworthy institution. Otherwise nobody will care when a learner earns a badge—least of all potential employers.

 

And that’s why the DML Competition was sure to seek out applicants with brand name muscle, like Disney, NASA, and MentorMob‘s own partners, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago & Northwest Indiana and Motorola Mobility Foundation. (View a complete list of DML Competition Winners and an overview of MentorMob’s cooperative effort, My Girl Scout Sash is an App, for specifics.)

 

The second thing a badge system must do is a little more slippery—because it’s never really been done before. Each open badges team has to make sure that learners’ knowledge gain is accurately assessed. This assessment can take many different forms: multiple choice quizzes, short answer questions, peer review, and administrator tracking of learner behavior are just a few options, each with its own advantages and drawbacks. And so the technology partner for DML Competition teams (each of which is composed of a Curriculum Partner and a Technology Partner) are tasked with testing and iterating an interface to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

Techne » Badges for learning: a NITLE videoconference discussion

Techne » Badges for learning: a NITLE videoconference discussion | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

Hangout participants suggested that badges should be the domain of creativity and imagination. We agreed on the importance of peer learning, which badges could be seen to support. Some saw badges as not really being part of gamification, but instead belonging to something quite different in education: “identity management”. One argued that badges can empower individuals to own more of their online lives, by helping grow or take responsibility for the internet’s growing reputation layer. Badges could be viewed as a form of “social proof” that “you know what you know”, offering another way of proving one has learned.
