Today's community college students need to know what research resources are available through their college's library, to learn how to efficiently access the information they need, and to be able t...
JM Gonzalez-Barahona's insight:
New e-learning environments need a redefinition of the relationship between librarians, instructors and learners. In the specific case of peer to peer learning, this is even more important, because of the extended role of using information by learners.
Badges are becoming more and more usual in certain learning communities, specially those in non-academic environments. But this system for recognition is extending to many other realms. This report explores how and when to introduce them in a very specific area: adult learners.
I am proud to announce Worlds of Learning @ New Milford High School, a digital badge professional learning platform. The idea behind this platform is to provide professional learning with a pinch of gamification. For some time now, we have been hearing about digital badges and how they can be used to guide, motivate, document and validate formal and informal learning.
Many different institutions are looking at how to use badges to recognize outcomes of learning processes, and at how to substitute or complement traditional methods for certification of skills and knowledge. This program is one more effort in this direction,which includes a gamification twist which is worth looking at.

Open peer to peer learning, that kind of learning where peers follow a common, and community-supported learning process in which anyone can participate, is emerging as a new paradigm in e-learning. Although it is also possible in in-place learning, the power of using tools for joining distributed learning communities is really huge. In these communities, recognizing each others achievements and effort becomes a key way of rewarding in itself.
