DigitalMe will be bringing Open Badges to this year's Digital 2014 in Wales. The two-day event will see thousands of delegates come together to hear from experts and organisations at the cutting-edge of technology and innovation, including the world-famous Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT), Telefonica UK, Nominet, Microsoft, We Predict and Sir Terry Matthews. Alongside an economy-focused day, the event will include a day dedicated to digital skills and young people, featuring TeenTech, Young Rewired State and Britain’s latest social media millionaire, Gianni O’Connor.
We've been invited by TeenTech to run an Open Badge Design workshop in the afternoon of Day 1.
Mozilla Open badges are a new agile way to recognise achievement. They give educators the flexibility to recognise and reward skills like teamwork, digital creativity and problem solving. With over 500,000 badges created by educators in and out of school worldwide, and growing endorsement from major technology companies, they are radically democratising the process of accrediting skills.
In this session you will:
- learn about how badges are created, issued & endorsed
- see examples of badges created by teachers & digital leaders which recognise skills from the new computing curriculum
- start to design your own badges using the Badge Canvas
By attending this session you will earn an 'Open Badges 101' badge.
Everyone who attends Digital 2014 will also be able to earn their first Open Badge.
