An Open, Distributed System for Badge Validation

An Open, Distributed System for Badge Validation | country living in Vermont | Scoop.it

There have been a lot of people that have claimed that badges could replace degrees. That collections of badges could serve as legitimate portfolios or pathways that tell the same story as a degree, and in fact tell a much more in depth story given that we can use badges to capture more granular learning and each badge is evidence-based. I get asked a lot if I believe that badges will replace degrees and it’s a tough question. It’s not what we are setting out to do necessarily, the use case for badges in informal learning spaces is a primary one since that learning is not currently recognized. But I know I do believe in the utopia where learners can craft their own paths across the many learning opportunities available - especially those that are free and accessible. Where on-the-job experience counts for you in a real way. Where all of the learning and experiences in your lifetime are connected and stitched together around your identity or identities. Degrees definitely do no do this for you, but badges could.

I had never imagined life to be so great here

I had never imagined life to be so great here | country living in Vermont | Scoop.it

For 38 of my years were spent living in a bedroom community outside of New York City. Even though I lived there, my heart always belonged elsewhere. I always knew I would live in or near the woods. I needed to be surrounded by trees, earth, wildlife and fresh clean air. Vermont would be the place my heart and soul would settle and plant roots. I am very lucky to live in such a spectacular place as green Vermont.

Both highlight “The Habitudes” of educators who are effectively using technology to enhance and impact teaching and learning. Hat tip to Shawn McCusker for this awesome Twitter find!

PowToon: AMAZING free animation tool | country living in Vermont | Scoop.it

...I have discovered a new creation site. Holy wow this is a cool tool. Basically, it makes you (and your students) look like rockstars when they present. You know all of those super cool animated videos that tell a story through drawings on a whiteboard? Now you can make those all on your own with a super simple drag-drop tool. Meet PowToon. It is awesome.
