The Evolving use of Badges in Education

The Evolving use of Badges in Education | Technology Enhanced Learning & ePortfolio |
Rewards as a Way to Motivate Students to Learn Today’s schools commonly use grade-based evaluations where students get rewarded for the knowledge they gain.

Get recognition for learning that happens anywhere. Then share it in the places that matter.

Paula Iaeger PhD's comment, June 18, 2013 9:43 AM
This is one application of badges that cross generations and circumstances. When workers are offered recognition for the training they receive, there is a desire to know more. A simple certificate might help but a digital badge for its transportability is much better. In a classroom grades of course have their place but what I like is that the natural curiosity is rewarded when a badge is voluntarily pursued. Badges celebrate extra effort, not mediocrity and a just-get-by mentality.

Moodle's Open Badges plugin. Still in alpha and planned for a Moodle 2.5 release (I think).


Have managed to have a play with it on a friends install and it is AWESOME.


See the other Scoopit entry for details on the documentation.

I am finishing a class Games In Learning and Assessment through UW-Stout. The class was a game, the player had to earn both quest and reward badges. It was created in Badgestack. Very cool way to learn.

Link to documentation and test Moodle site that you can both be a teacher (to make and issue badges) and student (to earn them).


This is still very early days but highly encouraging.


Works best if you also have a Mozilla backpack set up at


Hugely encouraging and highly exciting work from Totara.
