  6. 6. Open Badge Information
  7. 7. A Disruptive Innovation Competing with non-consumption Technological core
  8. 8. Course Description • 1 credit course. Wanted to find a way to extend learning beyond our course. • 3 major projects in which students selected a technology they wanted to learn to fulfill the assignment. • Wanted to better assist students who have differing levels of technological ability.
  9. 9. Design of our Open Badge System
  10. 10. Mozilla’s Webmaker badges plan used the “constellation” concept in which smaller badges are earned and added together to receive a higher level badge.

Course Level Badge Project Level Badge Lower Level Badges Criteria for Earning Lower Level Badges Google Sites Technology Integration iMovie/ MovieMaker Personal Tech Learning Pages Embedding Professional Pre- Production Post- Production Professional Choice 1 Choice 2 Choice 3 Create basic web page Embed YouTube Video Good choice of theme Select appropriate concept to teach w/ video Add Clips/ Images Chose appropriate music Create Announcement page Embed Google Doc (viewable) Good choice of Color Scheme (if applicable) Concept must connect to Utah Core Split Clip (Do you even do this with iMovie anymore?) Audio levels of music, narration and other sound is at appropriate levels (You hear what you’re supposed to be able to hear) Add image Embed Calendar Navigation is Logical Create Storyboard Add Meaningful Narration (can this be done with both programs?) Must be engaging/ interesting to view Insert Map Must include digital images Add Background Music that does not Distract Cuts are in the best place Add and format text Must include some video you filmed Add Transitions Credits move slowly enough to be viewed, all works properly cited Add Links to other sites Add Titles Adjust volume of music/ Narration?

  29. 29. Future Design Iterations • Design of strategy and integration level badges. • Creating pathways for people to earn badges not in our classes, particularly inservice teachers. • Scaling assessment. • Maintaining accuracy of rubrics and tutorials as tools evolve and change. • Creating a smart dashboard management tool for people to log in and track their progression on badges (ala Khan Academy).
  30. 30. Future Research Considerations • Student motivation. How many students will go above and beyond to earn badges? extra badges? Post-class badges? • How useful can this be for teacher inservice professional development? Does it present a solution that will be useful to teachers? • Principal/employer perceptions
