digital digs: Welcome to Badge World

digital digs: Welcome to Badge World | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it

Perhaps one might find the notion of open badges appealing. Open meaning what? Anyone can open their own diploma mill, err I mean badge-selling operation? Of course not. Badges would have to be accredited by someone. Not sure who, but I doubt getting that accreditation will be free. How could it be? What open means is market-driven. Badges will have monetary value. People want them as a route toward getting jobs. They will pay for them the same way they pay now for college credits. When we look at all the free, DIY learning that is out there now, it's free precisely because it hasn't been commodified.

Valary Oleinik's insight:

Gamification and badging may be all the rage these days but it is useful to looking at the "dark" side of badging. Why are we really doing it. What will it really accomplish. I think it is new and novel right now and maybe hasn't really found its way, but it is trying to solve some issues that we need a solution for. How do we record our accomplishments past higher education? We list memberships and awards on resumes but don't always have a way to show that we have the skills and motivation to move our careers and lives in new directions.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 1, 12:08 PM

The etymology of education is twofold. First, educare suggests caring pedagogy leading children towards taking responsibility, rather than just ownership, for their learning. Second, as students become more responsible for their learning, educere is leading in ways that allows students more responsibility in directing their learning.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, September 15, 9:52 AM

This is a huge deal, especially if you know the scope of Minecraft. The thing that will be interesting to me is how Microsoft will keep the game family friendly, and in that same vain, how it will take advantage of how school curriculums are using the game. This is not only a huge gaming opportunity for Microsoft, but also one that can promote its participation in its e-learning/educational departments. Minecraft is not only used to teach kids about creating 3-D worlds, but it teaches teamwork and society building among other skills. I know my son's school lets the kids play Minecraft quite a bit during their free period, and it's what has helped my son with his socialization skills. 

 

Let's see what Microsoft does with that. They've certainly acquired a gold mine, that's for sure!
