Could a new standard make digital badges the next 'disruptive' technology to take over education? Emerging tech experts say 'yes!'

 

Movie over, iPads! Digital badges could revolutionize education, thanks to a new standard.

 

Over the last year, the concept of digital badges has been gaining momentum in states and school district initiatives across the country.

"Catherine Lacey, a student at the University of Western Australia, is a Level 40 Hero in biology.

That’s her ranking on OpenStudy, where she spends up to 30 hours per week answering homework questions posed by students around the world.

Hero is the hardest badge to attain on the site, indicating considerable time spent helping other students. And Lacey doesn’t just help beginners—one of the many merit badges she’s earned from OpenStudy is for tutoring students in MIT open biology courses."

Yasemin Allsop's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:35 AM

As someone who just started to elarn about badges, this is really intresting for me!

Laura Graceffa's curator insight, August 16, 2013 6:15 PM

Can it work in an environment that discourages making differences in achievement obvious?

Yvonne Marie Webber's comment, August 26, 2013 11:35 PM
@Laura, I really think it can. the badges do not have to focus on product, but can focus on each student collaborating, sharing, contributing in the way that is best for that student. The badges do not have to be given in a hierarchal manner.
