2M Better Futures

2M Better Futures | Open Badges | Scoop.it

Employers need talent; workers need jobs. Open Badges is a 21st Century credentialing approach that connects the two so both businesses and individuals thrive. More learning is rewarded and more employers get the precision, diversity and breadth in talent they seek. By 2016, we envision an Open Badge ecosystem that at least a million workers and a million students can access – the emergence of an assessment approach designed for our times.

Digital Media and Learning Competition 5 2013

Digital Media and Learning Competition 5 2013 | Open Badges | Scoop.it

The Connected Learning movement is meeting these challenges by helping make it easier for youth to learn, connect, make, contribute, and share online. And it calls on and encourages youth to become creators and stewards of an open, inviting, and safe web.

 

The Digital Media and Learning Competition, administered by HASTAC and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, and in collaboration with the Born This Way Foundation and Mozilla, is calling for proposals that offer youth a chance to “Project:Connect” this summer.

 

The Project:Connect-Summer Youth Programming Competition for U.S. based organizations that support learning, youth development and civic engagement calls for Summer event and programming proposals to excite and enable youth to engage the web in civil, collaborative, productive, safe, and confidence-building ways.

Good idea if it's secure. Might replace traditional Universities for people that are used to learning online.
