Mozilla Open Badges & Rewarding 21st Century Skills through Supporter to Reporter | Digital Me | Digital Badges and Alternate Credentialling 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
