    • Name: Chris Dillon Role: TiC Digital Technology, Putaruru College Digital Badges: an online standard to recognise and verify learning 1 Woven skill badges (Source: http://www.adafruit.com/category/70) onemouse onemouse Chris Dillon
    • 2 Digital Badges: an online standard to recognise and verify learning Digital badges are a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest that can be earned in various learning environments. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_badges @onemouse Badges have a long history: in the Military and Scouting, and more recently digitally via “gamification” and then Mozilla & P2P.org Mozilla Open Badges https://wiki.mozilla.org/Badges Person 2 Person University https://p2pu.org/en/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P2PU http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1f/Korean_Scout_Uniforms_2007.jpg
    • Digital Badges 3 Why Badges? Why now? It was 2009 and hey I’m a geek and I like badges! http://www.nerdmeritbadges.com On Twitter in 2011 Jeff Utecht was talking about extrinsic recognition of Google Apps skills http://www.thethinkingstick.com/become-a-google-apps-ninja/ @onemouse Edmodo.com was updating and had come to the party with teacher awarded badges Nerd Badge Sash source: John Young http://www.flickr.com/photos/tikaro/3497605136/
    • 4@onemouse Digital Badges How I implemented Badges Created an edmodo.com School domain to share professionally with colleagues, and administer locally: • Teacher dashboard can create badges (including animated .gif) • Teacher community sharing of badges …but… • Badges are limit in that it is a “walled garden” with no trackable metadata or exporting of Credentials https://edmodo.com
    • 5@onemouse Digital Badges Further developments Mozilla launched Open Badges v.1 out of beta in June this year, providing a method for aggregating cross- platform provider credentials via “Backpack”. https://diy.org/ https://wiki.mozilla.org/Badges
    • 6@onemouse Digital Badges Further developments Other resource providers are beginning to implement “gamified” environments… http://www.codeavengers.com/ http://www.codecademy.com/ and provide widgets to share Open credentials across 3rd party environments http://www.khanacademy.org/about/blog/post /23071271279/facebook-opengraph
    • 7@onemouse Digital Badges Has it impacted on learning? Overall, I’d say yes it has: • Badges are conversation starters about learning • Badges are connectivist • Badges are motivators to participation • Badges are motivators to collaborate • Badges are recognition and assessment. Ultimately the information linked to badges will include how it was earned, when it was issued and who by and, ideally, a link back to some form of artifact relating to the work behind the badge.
    • 8@onemouse Digital Badges …and it not just for my students… I am developing my own Backpack. Linking them to my blog, to MOOC’s I am participating in, and to my own Learning Portfolio. https://www.accredible.com/gallery http://open.journalismco urses.org/
    • 9@onemouse Digital Badges What were the biggest challenges? • Validity and authentication of badges • Earner limitations based on age (Mozilla only hosts backpacks for users age 13+ for now) • Confused comparisons to trade-based certifications (electricians, automobile mechanics, etc.) • The success of badges in education relies on educators and trainers exploring their use and sharing with others • A risk that extrinsic motivators for tasks that students already do for intrinsic enjoyment reduces student motivation and undermines engagement.
    • 10@onemouse Digital Badges What I have realised: • Badges provide an opportunity to reconsider and reorder what we consider to be of value • To recognise achievements that could be recognised but are currently hidden or obscured • To support lifelong learning, by integrating both traditional pathways, alongside informal and external alternatives.
