What if we lived in a world without grades? What if, instead of grades, students were able to earn badges for their achievements? As President and Co-Founder of ClassBadges, James Sanders asks, “what does our current grading system mean to a student? Grades are not tangible.” Well, Classbadges.com is his answer.

Initial Questions About Digital Badges and Learning | Dan Hickey

Initial Questions About Digital Badges and Learning | Dan Hickey | Rhet Comp Grad School Adventures | Scoop.it

What learning-related functions will your badges serve? All badges function to recognize learning; as such, most badging practices also function to assess learning. Existing learning systems tend to be organized around teaching rather than learning. This means that deciding what learning to recognize and how to assess that learning can be surprisingly challenging. Recognizing and assessing learning serves to motivate learning. But some of the motivational functions are likely to be unplanned and unintended. Additionally, badging practices offer (mostly unexplored) potential for evaluating and studying learning. Finally, these functions interact with each other in complex and unpredictable ways. These functions and their interactions are explored here.
