  16. 16. Open Recognition - Examples Refugees have high expectations in terms of jobs, as they are often qualified – but their qualifications are not necessarily recognised when they arrive to Europe. It is also often very difficult for them to show proofs of their certificates, after their long journey to Europe. (European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA), 2015)
  17. 17. Open Recognition - Examples (https://www.lrng.org/)
  18. 18. Open Recognition - Examples The core idea is that a city mobilises behind a culture of learning supported by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, workplaces, and youth/community/civic organisations. The aim of Cities of Learning is to engage all in learning, most particularly those for whom traditional forms of learning are proving to be disengaging. (Anthony Painter, https://www.thersa.org)

  42. 42. Hands-on session : How to create and issue an Open Badge
  43. 43. Badge System 1. Set some general goals for your badge system: what would you like to accomplish ? 2. Badge design template 3. Design the badge and define the badge metadata 4. Publish the badge and start assessing and issuing 5. Earners receive the badge (via email or claim code) 6. Earners can collect, store, display & share their badges 7. Displayers & Consumers can verify and query badges that are public
  44. 44. Design your badge ● Images should be PNGs (or SVGs) ● Images should be square and not exceed 256kb for maximum compatibility. They should have dimensions not smaller than 90 x 90px. View badge images at small sizes to ensure that the content remains legible when scaled. Designer tool: https://www.openbadges.me/
  45. 45. Core badge elements
  46. 46. JSON metadata https://openbadgespec.org/
  47. 47. JSON metadata https://openbadgespec.org/ Things you can verify and explore in a badge: ● Details about the organization issuing the badge ● What the individual has done to earn the badge ● The criteria that the badge has been assessed against ● That the badge was issued to the expected recipient ● The badge earner’s unique evidence (optionally included) ● When the badge was issued and whether it has expired ● Possible framework or classification it is linked to (e.g. ESCO) ● ...
  48. 48. “Bake your Badge” ● Insert iTXt chunk with keyword openbadges into the PNG ● Add an xmlns:openbadges attribute to the SVG Badge Baking is the process of taking an Assertion and embedding it into the badge image. This allows Open Badges to be portable so that when a user displays a badge on a page, software that is OpenBadges-aware can automatically extract Assertion data and perform the checks necessary to see if a person legitimately earned the badge.
