Maryalice Leister's insight:

So much potential in this process and more and more schools, industries, etc. are getting on the bandwagon to make sure credit is given and transportable. Make sure the right people see this, the ones who can listen thoughtfully and act on it. Share!

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?

ClassBadges | Online Teacher Underground |

ClassBadges is a free online tool where teachers can award badges to students for accomplishments or academic mastery. Through your teacher account, you can award badges customized for your classroom or school. Badges can easily be aligned to academic goals or associated with existing school awards.

I wonder how these might be meaningful in the context of group therapy, and meeting therapeutic goals?
