An Open Badge System Framework: A foundational piece on assessment and badges for open, informal and social learning environments | DMLcentral

Every badge system needs, of course, badges. Those badges can represent various skills, competencies, qualities, achievements and interests achieved across many contexts over time. One of the benefits of the badge system over the traditional cumulative and normative grades or high-level degrees, is that it can be used to assess a much broader and deeper set of skills or competencies and capture each competency in a badge so that the learning path or more subtle, yet critical skills and experiences are not glossed over or lost.,

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it
While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

Which is why I had a few of my students experimenting with Scoop.it this week:
..
Specifically, they put together this collection of resources spotlighting the range of perspectives people have on New York City's decision to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

Designed to give users the chance to create curated collections of resources on topics that they are interested in, Scoop.it is a wicked mashup of digital goodness - part feed reader, part blogging tool, and part social bookmarking service.
...
Basically, Scoop.it can become a one-stop shop for (1). teaching kids to search, (2). giving kids chances to manage information, to evaluate sources and to build collections and (3). allowing kids to easily publish content on topics that they care about.
