Value, Cognitive Authority, and Digital Badges

Value, Cognitive Authority, and Digital Badges | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

The major question that I have had since I’ve started exploring new hosting opportunities for our ORMS badges involves aspects of value, credibility, and “sincerity” of design involved in our badging infrastructure. Put simply, I believe that people will make judgments about the believability, credibility, and relevance of the digital badges based on elements of the metadata, the images used, and where the badge is hosted.

An argument for the view that "people will make judgments about the believability, credibility, and relevance [of] digital badges based on elements of the metadata, the images used, and where the badge is hosted" -  likely to have relevance for the #oerrhub hypotheses on informal assessment methods and informal support for learning.

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Help Define the Future of Badge Initiative

 

There is enormous potential for badge initiatives to fundamentally improve the “exchange” of value between educational institutions, learners, and employers. But how is this “currency” defined? Who validates the value of badges? Who defines relevant sets of competencies, and for what purposes? To advance the answers to these and many other questions, we pulled together a team of experts from Mozilla, Blackboard, WCET, and Sage Road Solutions, as well as academic, governmental, civic, and corporate thought leaders, to provide a MOOC that fosters and strengthens emerging badge initiatives: “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials.” 

 

This free and open MOOC is designed to help teams of people define their own badge initiatives, appropriate to their own contexts, and work through a series of challenges leading to concrete implementation plans. With this scaffolded learning experience, we aspire to broaden the awareness of the potential of badges, and more importantly, to facilitate the implementation of sustainable badge frameworks that offer concrete structures for validated badge “currency” exchange among educational institutions, learners, and employers.

The More Things Change, the More Our Objections to Change Stay the Same

The More Things Change, the More Our Objections to Change Stay the Same | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Let me suggest five simple principles to change how we make change:

1. originality (look at things as if you've never looked at it before)

2. break from the past without disavowing it

3. leaders encourage a sense of dissatisfaction with the status quo

4. a sense of "humbition" among leaders 

5. priorities and practices have to stay consistent in good times and bad times.

Curated Guidelines and Examples for Aggregating Content Professionally

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, September 8, 2013 10:23 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Among the types of content curation that are broadly used, content aggregation has been one of the first and most popular approaches that has naturally sprung up.

Content aggregation itself can be carried out in many different ways, from a completely manual approach to a fully automated one, with many different shades in between.

 

If you are interested in learning more about these, and about how to aggregate content in the most ethical and professional fashion, I strongly suggest reading these two short articles written by two curation professionals:

http://mindymcadams.com/tojou/2013/aggregation-and-curation-in-journalism/ ;
 http://stevebuttry.wordpress.com/2012/05/16/aggregation-guidelines-link-attribute-add-value/ ;

  The first, by Mindy McAdams is a curated version of the second one which was published more than a year earlier by Steve Buttry. Together they do an excellent job of clarifying to the non-expert what curation and aggregation are all about.

 

The two articles offer clear guidelines, real-world examples and recommendations on how you can make content aggregation provide true additional value to both the content sources used and to the readers alike.

 

 

Recommended. 8/10
