Digital badges are an awesome way to recognize merit, strengths, behaviors and skill achievement in students and adults. For many years people have received recognition for their efforts and achievements. Sometimes they are given a certificate, medal, diploma or letter. However, it has always been hard to share this recognition to a wider audience. It was also hard to give these awards in a way that is easily shared and can scale to much larger groups.

Thanks to digital badges, those issues are beginning to disappear. This workshop discusses the possibilities, thanks to the introduction of digital badges, that are now available to the world.

  118. 118. ■ In June 2013, the Clinton Global Initiative announced a commitment to help 1 million students and 1 million U.S. workers access opportunities through badges. Non-profit organizations, universities, civic organizations, technology providers, employers, and others are teaming up to meet this challenge. ■ Blackboard’s recent integration with the Mozilla Open Badges framework enables educators around the world to become badge issuers to millions of students who can use their badge achievements portably in their online identities and resumes. ■ Mozilla, Blackboard, WCET and Sage Road Solutions are bringing together academic, governmental, civic, and corporate thought leaders to contribute to a MOOC, “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials,” that will foster and strengthen emerging badge ecosystems.
