  8. 8. People live their lives and learn across multiple settings, and this holds true not only across the span of our lives but also across and within the institutions and communities they inhabit – even classrooms, for example. I take an approach that urges me to consider the significant overlap across these boundaries as people, tools, and practices travel through different and even contradictory contexts and activities. KRIS GUTIERREZ
  9. 9. JOI ITO “I don’t think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity.” @joi

  16. 16. Everyone has the same building blocks… …but how do you put them together?
  17. 17. •  Which platform do you use for your information streams? •  What are advantages/ disadvantages? •  Where do you keep your work? •  Is it digital or analog? •  Private or public? • Where do you keep track of your digital files and resources? • What are restrictions/ benefits? • How safe are your collections? • Do you share collections with others? Why or why not? • Who are you connected to? • Which tools do you use to communicate with other students? • Are the tools public or private? • What are advantages or not? • How much do you share about you? Conversation Curation Information Streams Portfolio You
  18. 18. Many students already have confident social identities online, but developing identities as learners, writers, scholars, citizens — these are important tasks as part of higher education. - Catherine Cronin http://catherinecronin.wordpress.com/2014/02/12/openeducation-and- identities/ ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY
  19. 19. If institutions of learning are going to help learners with the real challenges they face… [they] will have to shift their focus from imparting curriculum to supporting the negotiation of productive identities through landscapes of practice.” - Etienne Wenger (Digital Habitats, 2010) ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY

  29. 29. CODEACADEMY
  30. 30. MOZILLA’S OPEN BADGES “Learning today happens everywhere. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen online or out of school. Mozilla Open Badges helps solve that problem, making it easy for any organisation to issue, manage and display digital badges across the web.”

  33. 33. IF WE USE OPEN BADGES •  Can facilitate informal and formal learning •  Can represent hard or soft skills •  Can be issued by an institution, after- school club, maker society, employer, a peer,…. •  Can be built on for lifelong learning •  Can transfer between contexts and life stages

  35. 35. DR SIMON CROSS @OU: THE POTENTIAL OF BADGES •  Accredit and evidence learning •  Strengthening student motivation •  Promoting deeper learning experiences •  Reaching informal/non-traditional learners •  Helping student better value achievements •  Recognising competency-based learning
  36. 36. DR SIMON CROSS @OU: FUNCTION OF BADGES •  Recognise learning •  Assessment of learning •  Motivating learning •  Evaluation & tracking of progress •  Goal setting •  Status •  Instruction to norms •  Reputation •  Group identity •  Tool of resistance or domination •  Symbols of exclusivity •  Souvenirs
  37. 37. DR SIMON CROSS @OU: ROLE OF BADGES Role of the Issuer Role of the Earner •  Solution to motivation issue •  Evidence generator •  Constructive alignment process •  Low cost / low effort option •  Saves time assessing prior learning •  Booster issuer image or profile •  Ties issuer to earner •  Retain authority and status

  49. 49. COULD BADGES BECOME A KEYSTONE HABIT?
  50. 50. IF BADGES WERE A KEYSTONE HABIT… •  Learning experience driven by learning design & assessment •  Step away from content-based courses in the LMS, and go to activity & evidence based learning •  Make graduate learning outcomes visible •  Less linear, more exploratory learning •  Ability to unbundle assessment activities from learning activities •  Flexible enrolment & assessment opportunities •  Appropriate staff involved at right time •  Improve feedback loop on progress but also ability to display progress. Support from peers. •  Sharing of successful pathways •  ….
