A Principal's Reflections: Integration of Digital Badges to Acknowledge Professional Learning

A Principal's Reflections: Integration of Digital Badges to Acknowledge Professional Learning | Badges, badges, badges, badges....make room | Scoop.it

This is an awesome post about the use of badges for CPD. Inspires me and makes me very jealous in equal measures!

gideonwilliams's insight:

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)?

Brilliantly simple site for making badges. I take the basic design and then do some simple editing in Fireworks to make them more relevant to our school.

 

Here are some examples: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7336564/badges2.png

JESS KLEIN: BadgeKit: An Invitation to Innovation | Badges, badges, badges, badges....make room | Scoop.it

Discussion on Mozilla's Badge Kit ideas. What I do like is the list of 7 doing verbs associated with badging (and innovation):

 

 

Design badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to visually design their badges

 

Define badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to define the information behind the badge according to the open badges standard, i.e. metadata specification

 

Assess badges: Enable organizations to define rubrics for assessment and assess the badges accordingly

 

Issue badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to issue their badges once the criteria is met

 

Collect and manage badges: Enable learners to see all the badges they have earned in one place, organize and manage them

 

Share badges: Enable learners to share their earned badges easily across the web

 

Discover badges: Enable learners, issuers (and down the road employers) to discover new badges and badge owners

A discussion on the impact of OpenBadges and their potential use in Higher education setting.

 

I am encouraged by the concluding statement that reads..."While it is unlikely that Open Badges will replace formal qualifications, it is clear that there is a desire for a mechanism that helps students promote their own unique set of skills, knowledge and experience..."

Over the past 12 months DigitalMe have been creating Open Badges with the support of Mozilla, MacArthur Foundation and the Digital Media and Learning Competition.

 

They have  condensed all their badge design experience into a simple canvas which will guide you through the process of creating your own open badge.
