    19. 19. Capturing the learning path • Illustrates the learning path rather than aggregated assessments • Badges can be more granular, aligned to a specific achievement • Portable, alternative certification modelWyles, 2012
    20. 20. Visual recognition of achievement With links to validation • Perceived value will differ based on the “use case”, or community. A wide variety of badge systems will emerge;  Formal education  Professional bodies  Peer to peer recognition  Corporate, workplace learning • Infrastructure to support diversity of contexts with better robustness and connection to Issuer.Wyles, 2012
    21. 21. Embedded information • Who was the Issuer? • Issue date • Brief description of how badge was earned • Links to artefacts, testimonials etc. – i.e. the e-portfolio • Web service for verification. – “Did the Issuer issue the badge?” – “Is it still valid?”Wyles, 2012
    22. 22. Open Badges: Risks and Benefits • Infrastructure for alternative credentialing – Modern society demands new and dynamic skills and literacies. Requires innovation and flexibility in learning environments • Anyone can issue accreditations about anything? Won’t this lead to badge “bling” and therefore badges become meaningless? – Badges need credibility but it’s within context – Only some will gain credibilityWyles, 2012
