Discovering Pathways Through Connected Learning | Connected Learning | Buffy Hamilton's Unquiet Commonplace "Book" | Scoop.it
Buffy J. Hamilton's insight:

Just caught up with the archive from yesterday's Connected Learning webinar on "Discovering Pathways Through Connected Learning" that focuses on badges on learning.  Hands down the best and most thoughtful conversation I've heard yet about badges and learning--worth 60 minutes of your time whether or not you think you are interested in badges and learning.  Very appreciative of such a thoughtful and rich discussion that gets beyond the "shiny" and low hanging fruit that people tend to grab onto and then never develop any depth.   http://connectedlearning.tv/discovering-pathways-through-connected-learning
