badges for civic skills | Peter Levine

In the educational context, badging offers several potential advantages: 1) It is an alternative to high-stakes testing. It can motivate people to learn–and schools to teach–without creating new ways to fail. 2) It can make labor markets work better by indicating exactly what skills an individual has. It can thus help people obtain jobs they would otherwise miss–and help firms find the right workers. The same advantages would also apply to unpaid civic work. 3) It allows the tasks of education and assessment to be shared or distributed, instead of being assigned to schools alone. The same badge could be awarded by a school, a church, or a private firm.

Institution, Know Thyself! How Members Can Decide What Counts #dmlbadges | HASTAC | elearning p-20 | Scoop.it

The activity of inventing a badging system means thinking through credentials and credit in a new way that, in and of itself (even if one decides not to adopt such a system), affords us a rare opportunity, as a collective, to think together about what we think counts and how we count what everyone contributes to the learning experience.
