On Digital Badges, Participatory Learning, Flipped Classrooms | Barry Joseph via DMLcentral | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

If you read this blog, you have undoubtedly heard about the new interest in digital badging systems...But to prepare for the level of attention sure to ratchet up come March, when HASTAC announces the winners of the $2M “badges for lifelong learning” grants, we thought it worth taking a look back at the talk that launched a thousand badges: Eva L. Baker’s "The End(s) of Testing." Back in 2007, Baker gave the Presidential Address for the American Educational Research Association (AERA). After exploring a wide range of problems with the current use of assessments within schools, she focused on her key recommendation: the development of merit badge-like “Qualifications.” Reading her words now in the publication that grew from her talk, or watching the online recording of the original event (she begins speaking at 44:00), one is confronted by the remarkable vision and promise that has informed this grand experiment.

The Tech Curve: On Varieties of Electronic Portfolios

The Tech Curve: On Varieties of Electronic Portfolios | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Portfolios in education have been around for some time, and I think the term has developed a number of meanings depending on the educators or students purpose. In this video, one of my students talks about three varieties of digital portfolios and because of how we have implemented their collection, how a student can move easily from one form to the next. The three types discussed are:

1) The portfolio as "Catch-All" where all the students work is collected.
2) The Educational portfolio that emphasizes pieces of work the teachers is looking for.
3) The Showcase portfolio where students can manage and select examples of their best work.
