  15. 15. Metadata The badge does not show information about name of the participant, day, time. These pieces of information are absolutely necessary. I prefer the Certificate of Attendance – it’s more transparent.
  16. 16. Usage of Open Badges It still remains unclear how I can use it. If it’s possible, would be great to get more exact instructions. I don’t quite understand what to do with it.
  17. 17. Employer recognition I do not like the format. My administrative office wants a document, not a badge. Employers are used to see papers, certificates, etc. I don't know if they will take them in serious. I think provision of letter or certificate of attendance would be also useful. My employer prefers them to be in Pdf format.

  28. 28. Employer recognition It’s a slow process but more and more institutions or universities are adopting badges … especially universities delivering MOOCs … Letizia Cinganotto National Institute for Documentation, Innovation and Educational Research (INDIRE), Italy
  29. 29. Teacher testimonials Your webinars and open badges are great! Well done, Cambridge! Very good support for our continuing professional development. Many thanks for this badge, wish you more success! It was a great webinar. I learned a lot and its even better with the badge system to actually prove what we've learned. I loved the content of the webinar. Better with this open badge now.
  30. 30. • Content is king • Prime motivation for adoption by teachers is evidence of professional development • Motivational impact of badges increases with familiarity • Uptake by employers relies on teacher influence • Adoption in the tertiary sector is influencing wider adoption Summary findings
  31. 31. Continue:  issuing Open Badges for webinar attendance and integrated into thedigitalteacher.com  raising awareness among the teaching community and employers. Research:  what else to badge: attendance at face to face seminars; training courses?  how to recognise learning: non-certified courses?  badges for qualifications: which ones? Open Badges: what next?
