What are Open Badges?

Brief introduction

Origins

• Badges, medals, ribbons since pre-Roman times

• Military, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides • Public recognition rewarding positive

(desired) behaviour• More recently: video games – “leveling up”

Open Badges and Digital Certification

• Competency based– Can parallel formal certification, or feed into it

• Visually efficient and appealing– Fun, motivating to earn (?)

• Transparent, trustable– Criteria, evidence, issue/expiry date– Ongoing connection to issuer

• Individual learning pathways– Granular milestones; see progress in MOOCs, OERs

• Progress in incomplete programs can still be recognized

– Flexible, diverse, blendable, portable, shareable

• Automatically / manually awarded

How do Open Badges support learning?

Inside Higher Ed, Jan 2014

Badging “can help speed the shift from credentials that simply measure seat time, to ones that more accurately measure competency.”Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education, 2011

Extrinsic Motivation

Formative Summative

‘They make me smile! Which is a good thing – learning should be fun and I think this was a fun element of the course’

‘Earned my Week 1 Badge from #oldsmooc! Unexpectedly pleased to have a reward for effort! What fun and motivates

‘I’m not sure yet if I’ll really use them [externally]’

‘I decided that they might be useful as evidence of professional development … I don’t know if anyone in my institution will care, but in case they do, I have the badges.’

Open BadgesMaking learning visible

• Progress markers– Motivating learners,

supporting advisors

• Learning pathways– Granular, incremental, flexible

• Visual branding– Issuers and learners

• Online trust system– Demonstrate skills &

capabilities

Six Ways to Look at Badging Systems Designed for Learning

• Alternative Assessment• Gamifying Education• Learning Scaffolding• Develop Lifelong Learning Skills• Driver for Digital Media & Learning• Democratize Learning

How do I get started?

Page 29: Open Badges: Making Learning Visible (MADLaT 2014)

Incremental stepsGet your feet wet and keep on wading in

• Set up your personal Backpack account– http://backpack.openbadges.org/

• Earn your first badge– http://openbadges.org/earn/

• Create and issue your first badge– http://badg.us/ is a good exploratory platform– Visual design: custom is best, but experiment with this online

designer: https://www.openbadges.me/

• Research and reflect– http://www.savvyfolio.net/user/don/open-badges-and-higher-ed

ucation

• Design and implement a small system…– Sound pedagogy, robust technology

Recommended Badge Practices

• Set clear, objective criteria to make them easy to understand

• Make them easy to accept and display• Make them a valued “currency”

– Easy to start, getting harder

• Add new ones on a regular basis to maintain interest

• Use technical support wisely to support educators, solve problems and ensure sustainability

TechnologyGetting serious about implementation

• Badge Creation and Issuing Platforms– Badg.us– Cred.ly– Wordpress: BadgeOS, WPBadger– Moodle, Blackboard (D2L – coming?)– Mozilla Badge Kit– Openbadgefactory.com (Moodle/Mahara/Open

API)– Mozilla spreadsheet:

Bringing Badges in……should you decide to do so

• Begin with “why”? (lead with the need)– Engagement, retention, behaviour change, branding, etc.

• Consider building a logic model• Find early adopters• Start small, get it working, improve over time• Insist on excellent visual design• MAKE THE MECHANICS EASY for both issuers and earners• Get admin support to scale up• Get appropriate technical resources• Market!

– Presentations, elevator pitches, gentle nagging– Publicize adopters (news, awards, etc.)– Reports, statistics
