What if we usedbadges for learning?
Not just digital badges but      Open Badges
Open Badges are images withmetadata hard-coded into them
Visual representations ofachievements, learning, skills,   interests, competencies
Open Badges can complement        traditional    education practices
They can accommodate   formal & informal  learning pathways
They can represent hard & soft skills, peer assessment, and  stackable lifelong learning
