If you are interested in creating and using Digital Badges for your students this would be a good place to start (specifically focused on UK but can be adapted) The whole site is useful, has links to others.  I was looking for information about Employers and what they thought about Digital Badges.  It's a no brainer to me as I am using online tools all the time, UK HEIs should be jumping all over this.

Useful to decide how to award the Open Badges - more and more employers are recognising these as achievements - when added to something like a LinkedIn profile, they have value (can't see why you would use them without context.

EDUCAUSE Review Online
Fiona Harvey's insight:

This is exactly what we should be thinking about to recognise the extra curricular activities that students are constantly undertaking.  Many students can just add these to their CV but with a badge they can evidence what they have done, by linking to video, blogs, and photos to prove that they were involved.  This provides a much richer picture than a piece of paper.  

 

The University of Southampton Digital Literacies SIG met last week to discuss creating a Badge for recognising the Student Digital Champions (DigiChamps) and it would be good to recognise other student activities as well.

focus for this is with school children - just keeping this to hand because it refers to 'we don't need no stinkin' badges' (:-)) also has broad use for info sharing

Catalyst for Change: A Penn State Case Study on Digital Badges (207949153)

During this session, we'll provide an overview of Penn State's new L3 Digital Badging Platform and discuss how it was built to address a variety of academic and cocurricular needs. We'll start with the why and how of digital badges, share our research on badges, talk about related challenges and opportunities, and ultimately discuss how badges fit into an exciting ecosystem of educational change, alongside learning analytics and MOOCs. We'll even let attendees get their hands on L3 and create some badges of their own. And we'll do it all without a single Treasure of the Sierra Madre joke. Maybe. For badge novices and experts alike! OUTCOMES: Understand, at a high level, the origin of digital badges * Learn how and why to create a digital badge in a vast array of contexts * Learn how to build broad stakeholder buy-in for using digital badges across your school, university, or organization * Understand what Penn State research tells us about how badges are influencing behavior http://www.educause.edu/events/educause-learning-initiative-annual-meeting/2014/catalyst-change-penn-state-case-study-digital-badges
