Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning And 7 Tips To Use It Right - InformED | Digital Badges | Scoop.it

"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.

Richard Jones's curator insight, July 23, 2013 6:25 PM

"To begin unpacking the relationship between badges and motivation, they conducted a study using badges within an intelligent-tutor system for teaching applied mathematics to middle-school students. Their findings indicate that badge earning could be driven by learner motivations and that systems with badges could have a positive effect on critical learner motivations. However, badge acquisition patterns were different across learners with different levels of prior knowledge. Different badge types also affected different learners motivation." 


Food for thought on badge implementation.

The world is changing fast and, today more than ever, traditional modes of assessment fail to capture the learning that happens everywhere and at every age.  Digital badges are a powerful new tool for identifying and validating the rich array of peoples’ skills, knowledge, accomplishments and competencies. Digital badges inspire new pathways to learning and connect learners to opportunities, resources, and one another..." --HASTAC
