'Digital Badges' Would Represent Students' Skill Acquisition

'Digital Badges' Would Represent Students' Skill Acquisition | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Initiatives seek to give students permanent online records for skills they have developed that they could then use when applying to college or for jobs.

 

KF:  The badges approach is especially suited to more open education strategies and begins to recognise that there are sytill areas that do no require formal accreditation.  I suspect the approach has a long way to go before mainstream adoption and will need to address some questions around "assurance of learning" if it is to be picked up more ubiquitiously.  I can see there being a system whereby even your employer can award badges that help you map your learning from experience and training.

"With apologies to psychometricians who may read, let me set some vernacular context for additional thoughts (prompted originally by Dan Hickey‘s, and then Alex Halavais’, writing) regarding my own thinking on badges and assessment.

 

It is beyond argument that we cannot crack open a learner’s head, insert a magnifying glass, and make direct, error-free observations of what the learner “knows.” Since we can’t actually take a “direct” measure of what someone knows, we collect evidence that allows us to increase or decrease our beliefs about the likelihood that they know, or are able to do, something."
