Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 21, 7:23 PM

I think badges are still becoming a thing, but while they're in the process of finding some traction, it won't hurt to know a bit more about them. The more we think about how they could be used and their value, the more likely we are to determine if they're worth our time and effort.

2007 Presidential Address—The End(s) of Testing

2007 Presidential Address—The End(s) of Testing | Digital Badges in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Abstract

This expanded version of the 2007 Presidential Address for the American Educational Research Association approaches changes in assessment and accountability from the perspective of achieving balance. The author identifies unresolved conceptual and practical issues in the use of assessment in the schools and describes approaches intended to mitigate problems or improve practice. An example is given from formative assessment research that integrates some of these approaches (Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing, at the University of California, Los Angeles). International examples of performance and assessment are also reviewed. The author suggests that secondary school assessment be modified to focus students on acquiring concrete Qualifications that certify important accomplishments, with a wide choice of Qualification areas. She argues that using concrete accomplishments and restructuring tests will help schools and their students to regain needed balance.

Mozilla Open Badges & Rewarding 21st Century Skills through Supporter to Reporter | Digital Me | Digital Badges in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Article outlining a winning proposal by UK based DigitalME for the MacArthur Foundation DML Competition. Supporter to Reporter is a real-life learning programme where young people take on roles of sports journalists, media producers and mentors - DigitalME will use the Mozilla Open Badges Infrastructure to assess and reward skills and competencies achieved.  

 

I'm delighted that DigitalME will be talking about open badges alongside Doug Belshaw at our JISC RSC Scotland conference on June 8th in Glasgow. For more information see: http://www.rsc-scotland.ac.uk/Dragons/index.htm
