‘Badges’ for Lifelong Learning: Reframing the Debate (#openbadges, #dmlbadges)

Patience is a Virtue

I’ve written my third post for DML Central. Entitled ‘Badges’ for Lifelong Learning: Reframing the Debate it’s an attempt to look afresh at Mozilla’s Open Badges infrastructure and the DML Badges competition.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been talking to people from Mozilla, HASTAC and DML Central about badges for learning and, I have to say, I’m rather excited at the potential. Imagine a system where informal and peer-to-peer accredited in an open way. Amazing.
