Moushira Issa's curator insight, June 16, 2013 5:04 PM

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.
