  • 10. DISCUSSION QUESTIONSIn your group, raise and discuss ideas that open-education and badging have started At first, we mutually questioned what was new about these concepts We both recalled teachers who put “stickers on papers”, or even simple verbal acknowledgement of good work …but as Ms. McQuigge explained more about these concepts it became clear how useful this badging system could be …and how applying an age old concept of motivation to 21st century skills by use of a digital format…with a “clickable” history But, we still wondered…How best to avoid peer to peer subjectivity based on “social cliques”, etc? Per Ms. McQuigge…it is key to link Badges to clear objectives, and to insure that badge criteria are met for attainment of a badge… Also, badge criteria should represent substantial accomplishment…and work has to be validated for badges to have meaning and validity…and, we agreed ! Finally, we thought about how be to ensure that badges had credibility?... Students need to learn the values of badging system, and Teachers will play a vital role through their interactions with Students and their own use of Badges in Professional Development, etc…Teacher are important role models once again…not a surprise! Badges can provide excellent motivational tools for Teachers to drive skill development that is not inherently linked to grades or formal classroom assessment
  • 11. DISCUSSION, CONTINUEDWhat aspects of a class project or complex assignment might fit within a peer review badge type system?- P2P is a big deal! Badging is a great tool to utilize this type of informal assessment- Badging could be used to assess Final Report-outs from a project (a portion of the assessment using P2P- Badging can be used to assess “soft skills”, not inherent in the core curriculum such as presentation skills, powerpoint mastery, that are not specifically assignable to content- Badging can be used as part of the assessment of group project work, where perhaps peer assessment (within the groups) could be conducted to assess each person’s contributions on the project based on criteria- Or…individuals can be nominated to contribute their p2p comments as part of the badging criteria or assessment

  • 14. …But still not a foolproof system !
