  25. 25. Why Digital Open Badges Edu.hel.fi Digital Open Badge certificate is based on Digi.hel.fi skill levels.  Badges are awarded for skills applied in practice  Evidence-based Digital Open Badge applications (freely available online)  Badge applications can be submitted during or after what ever competence development & training  Badge applications can be submitted based on prior competence and skills.  Badges are used to measure the strategic objective  Badges are used to plan competence development as a whole  Badges support lifelong learning (formal and informal) 23.4.2020 Jukka Orava 25 (Source: Helsingin kaupungin opetuksen digitalisaatio-ohjelma vuosille 2016–2019, s. 16. 2016.)
  26. 26. The purpose of Digital Open Badges, continues  Badges help visualize skills, competences and practice  Evidence-based competence assessment is the future of assessment  vocational education is already guided by evidence-based assessment  Badges are Microcredentials and as such the future of credentials, credits, certificates, curriculum vitae, diplomas, portfolios etc.  Badges help to visualize and concretize competence frameworks  In a very practical way – theory into practice 23.4.2020 Jukka Orava 26
  27. 27. What else is needed? • Project owner + steering group etc. (leadership support) • A clear and common objective – reasons • Adequate resources, maintenance and development (support site) • Continuing development through feedback (iterations) • Support the use of Badges with incentives and proper resources • Collaborate and form networks – it is easier to to distribute and share badge brands than develop them yourself 23.4.2020 Jukka Orava 27
