7 Things You Should Know About Badges | EDUCAUSE.edu

7 Things You Should Know About Badges | EDUCAUSE.edu | Library instruction | Scoop.it

Badges are digital tokens that appear as icons or logos on a web page or other online venue. Awarded by institutions, organizations, groups, or individuals, badges signify accomplishments such as completion of a project, mastery of a skill, or marks of experience. Learners fulfill the issuer-specific criteria to earn the badge by attending classes, passing an exam or review, or completing other activities, and a grantor verifies that the specifications have been met and awards the badge.

John Shank's curator insight, July 26, 2013 12:07 PM

The Blended Librarians Online Community is looking at how badges could be used in our community. We are considering badges for members who suggest and setup webcasts, participate in webcasts, conduct interviews, post summary blogs of webcasts, etc... Do you think earning badges for this type of activity and accomplishment is worthwhile?

This is a very hard PIL to swallow for me as an academic librarian - 80% of todays students will not ask a librarian for help. "Houston, we have a problem."
