I Flunked My Social Media Background Check. Will You?

I Flunked My Social Media Background Check. Will You? | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
Your next job application could require a social media background check. Odds are, you have no clue what that means. Nobody does. It's new and scary and probably scours the Web for pictures of you puking on the beach.
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Social intelligence is a thing.  Even more reasons to think about what you are posting or tagging.

Catalyst for Change: A Penn State Case Study on Digital Badges (207949153)

During this session, we'll provide an overview of Penn State's new L3 Digital Badging Platform and discuss how it was built to address a variety of academic and cocurricular needs. We'll start with the why and how of digital badges, share our research on badges, talk about related challenges and opportunities, and ultimately discuss how badges fit into an exciting ecosystem of educational change, alongside learning analytics and MOOCs. We'll even let attendees get their hands on L3 and create some badges of their own. And we'll do it all without a single Treasure of the Sierra Madre joke. Maybe. For badge novices and experts alike! OUTCOMES: Understand, at a high level, the origin of digital badges * Learn how and why to create a digital badge in a vast array of contexts * Learn how to build broad stakeholder buy-in for using digital badges across your school, university, or organization * Understand what Penn State research tells us about how badges are influencing behavior http://www.educause.edu/events/educause-learning-initiative-annual-meeting/2014/catalyst-change-penn-state-case-study-digital-badges
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Excellent progress made by Penn State who seem to have a handle on Digital Badges.
