Introduction to self-claimed badges (selfie badges)

In this webinar, Eric Rousselle gives an introduction to a new exciting feature in Open Badge Passport - self-claimed badges. Self-claimed badges give users the possibility to get recognised for individual skills and achievements that employers haven’t anticipated, or that are not described by existing badges.

Introduction to self-claimed badges (selfie badges)

  1. 1. Introduction to self-claimed badges Eric Rousselle 12.5.2020 What can I do? See my selfie badges!
  2. 2. What is a self-claimed or selfie badge?
  3. 3. Do we need selfie badges? ● Organisations have created badges to recognise the skills and achievement that they value, but only a small part of individual informal learning experience can be recognised by matching badges created by others. ● Anyone can create a portfolio or a Linkedin profile to showcase his skills and achievements. Why should it be different with badges?
  4. 4. Understanding the value of a selfie badge • We are used to thinking that recognition and validation are rights reserved to the badge creator/issuer (authority, expert, validator etc .) • A selfie badge is not a “self-recognition” (recognising involves always at least two parties) but the issuer claims and showcases the things he wants to be recognised for. • The value of the badge is mainly generated by its endorsers • In many cases creating meaningful endorsements requires that the badge contains some evidence. • A selfie badge without evidence and endorsements is a simple claim. But in Open Badge Passport a simple claim badge can be enriched by his holder and become a valuable micro-portfolio
  5. 5. Open Badge Passport and selfie badges
  6. 6. How selfie badges could be used? • To support reflexive learning and place the learner at the center of his learning experience (engagement, motivation) • To recognise and validate achievements and processes (endorsement by peers, teachers, supervisor, tutors, or coaches) • To develop rich and validated micro-portfolios (based on open badge standard) • To support collaborative learning: co-creation of group-claimed badges • To create badges matching with job opportunities
