Would love to hear about UK schools using badges as part of CPD. Was told that @stuartridout was considering this in his school.

 

Surely the lifting and handling badge is only around the corner (or on the shelf)?

gideonwilliams's insight:

Developers meeting to discuss Moodle 2.5

 

Some great features discussed here and always nice to have them explained and shown rather than just reading about it.

Here is the new video which also shows you how to import badges gained from other sites back into Moodle.

 

Bit of a ramble but we get there in the end!

JESS KLEIN: BadgeKit: An Invitation to Innovation

JESS KLEIN: BadgeKit: An Invitation to Innovation | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it
gideonwilliams's insight:

Discussion on Mozilla's Badge Kit ideas. What I do like is the list of 8 doing verbs associated with badging (and innovation):

 

 

Design badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to visually design their badgesDefine badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to define the information behind the badge according to the open badges standard, i.e. metadata specificationAssess badges: Enable organizations to define rubrics for assessment and assess the badges accordinglyIssue badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to issue their badges once the criteria is metCollect and manage badges: Enable learners to see all the badges they have earned in one place, organize and manage themShare badges: Enable learners to share their earned badges easily across the webDiscover badges: Enable learners, issuers (and down the road employers) to discover new badges and badge owners

Badger Block brings Open and Custom Badges to a Moodle near you | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

A block to manage all your badges!

 

While this block hasn't yet been released, it is a great preview of what's to come when badges can be pulled directly into Moodle and displayed or can be customized by and displayed on a specific site.

 

Some great work here by Ian Checkland. Read his other posts somewhere else on this Scoopit
