  23. 23. • Digital badges have been a boon for efforts to validate the acquisition of soft skills such as problem-solving, persistence, communication, and other attributes that are valued by employers. • The ultimate goal (of digital badges) is to develop a method of evaluation that will complement traditionally recognized credentials. • Currently, digital badging systems are gaining traction in many online learning environments including Khan Academy, with promising results. • “Passport to Success,” is a badging system that tracks achievements through grades K-12 and is implemented alongside a college readiness program.
  24. 24. Credentials Reform: How technology and the changing needs of the workforce will create the higher education system of the future by Jamie Merisotis • Learning will be the core measure of progress with students able to demonstrate what they’ve learned through dynamic platforms. • Today’s job seekers can possess everything from associate degrees and apprenticeships to occupational licenses and education certificates, all the way to digital badges and employer- based certification. • There is a drive to connect credentials from a variety of providers into one comprehensive and navigable system which uses a universal taxonomy. • For 21st century workers the digital resume should be seen as a reservoir of skills and competencies that have been accumulated over time from a range of providers and provides flexibility to manipulate and group competencies and skills as required by potential employers.
  25. 25. What to consider • Purpose • Stakeholders (students, school, future employers) • Audience (single or multiple) • Types of badges (hard skills, soft skills, progress, achievement • Lifecycle • Learning Pathways (linear / non-linear) • Implementation (who is responsible for creating, administering, assessing, accrediting) • User experience • Platform to be used / technology • Metrics and analytics
  26. 26. Where to from here…… • Aim for seamless integration without the need for a third party program outside the LMS • Continue to change the culture from badges merely being a glorified reward sticker to a legitimate and valuable credentialing system for skills and competencies. • Explore other curriculum areas that could benefit from the use of this digital credentialing system
