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. But thanks to a new standard, emerging technology experts are calling digital badges the next ‘disruptive’ technology—not only for students, but for teachers and administrators, as well.
"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."
