Badge System Design An introduction to badge system designthrough multi-criteria performance driven design created by Peter Rawsthorne http://criticaltechnology.blogspot.ca
Introduction - A rubric built as a guide Purpose: to review the attributes of good badge system design ● Think about it from a performance perspective ● Consider the main criteria within each performance level ● There are three contexts to consider ○ the individual ○ the community ○ the institutionto view and contribute to the associated rubric, follow the following google document link;https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ak8Mcp1f93B1dHpOQVJnMzhJSm94Q1VsZHBySTZ3VlE&usp=sharing
The performance levels● Introductory - just the basics of a badge system. the badge system implements just what is needed to provide a basic / introductory badge system. The level of knowledge to create an introductory badge system is a minimum.● Working - a working badge system. It implements everything of the introductory with the addition of a more thorough set of dimensions and integration with other learning and credentialing systems. A working badge system is a complete badge system.● Notable - a badge system of note, it should be referred to as a good working system with additional features that should be considered when developing badge systems. It implements everything of the working system with the addition of being recognized (and utilized) by other learning and credentialing systems within the same subject domain.● Exemplary - the exemplary badge system is a badge system that most others aspire to be. The exemplary badge system becomes the defacto standard for accrediting a subject domain.
The three contexts● Individual - people or small groups, friendships, self-directed learners, autodidacts, heutagogues.● Community - community organizations, festivals, conferences, communities of practice, distributed groups.● Institution - traditional educational institutions, large businesses, international organizations.
