How Open Badges Could Really Work In Education

How Open Badges Could Really Work In Education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Higher education institutions are abuzz with the concept of Open Badges.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

For higher education institutions interested in keeping pace, establishing a digital ecosystem around badges to recognize college learning, skill development and achievement is less a threat and more an opportunity. Used properly, Open Badge systems help motivate, connect, articulate and make transparent the learning that happens inside and outside classrooms during a student’s college years.

This is an interesting idea to use in the classroom. It would motivate students to improve their skills to achieve these badges. I would suggest implementing these with some incentive system so that students pursue these badges instead of earning them passively as useless labels. These badges can be useful to track progress of historical thinking skills.
