An informative presentation from Doug Belshaw on Open Badges:

Open badges : A new learning currency Tim Riches & Doug Belshaw Learning Technologies 29 Jan 2014 from DigitalME

I find the approach of badging to be very interesting – another lighter form of credit accumulation – but will be interested to see how effective they’ll be seen to be beyond accrediting skills and extending to vague and wicked problems (nonroutine interactive skills? see slide 28)?
But in terms of skills and the demonstration of actual competence (competence as having done rather than competence as having the potential, possibly, to do …), I think the open badges approach is a really good one (would have been really great when I was working in community media).
