Badge Summit 2018 – Exploration of Micro-Credentials, Access and Equity

Cette année, la 3e édition de l’événement Badge Summit 2018 – An exploration of micro-credentials, access & Equity aura lieu à Chicago, le 23 juin juste avant le ISTE 2018. C’est l’une des rencontres importantes du réseau des experts, praticiens, fournisseurs et chercheurs dans l’univers des badges numériques et du standard Openbadges.

Lors de ma dernière participation sur place au Sommet sur les attestations (Digital Credentials) et les badges numériques par IMS Global à Orlando en mars 2017, j’ai pu rencontrer les acteurs les plus influents et inspirants dans le monde académique et des affaires au niveau du mouvement des badges numériques.

C’est principalement Noah Geisel (@SenorG) qui organise cet événement nord-américain. Il est très actif dans le réseau avec, entre autre, BadgeChat, une réunion sur Twitter assez populaire.

See engagement increase, awareness spread and personalized learning grow by designing and creating a unique brand for your school or district program. In this session hear how school districts created personalized professional development and learning for both teachers and students, that is supported with a brand. Going beyond the brand, participants will hear how the ‘players’ in learning games can obtain not only badges, but be incentivized with fun challenges that are individual and team/school based. Experience hands-on gamification and promotional strategies to take your program beyond badges.

LXD: Designing for Impact, Engagement and Deep Learning
The most impactful micro-credentialing systems begin with purposeful learning experience design (LXD). LXD marries the disciplines of learning sciences, design thinking and neuroscience with learner-centered pedagogy and interactive resources. In this interactive session, Convergence Design Lab will share tips, strategies, lessons learned, and resource examples culled from our work designing in-person, online, and blended learning experiences for youth and educators. A particular focus is on using play and participatory media strategies that are relevant, choice-based and engaging to the user.

Using a Competency Based Approach to Broaden Access to College Credit Through Open Badges 
Students graduating into post-secondary opportunities are asked to document their learning, too often, by references to proxy measures, such as course grades, GPA, or transcripts. Educators — students, teachers, and policy experts — from one high school and community college share their experiences building information-rich digital badges to broaden access to college credit and post-secondary opportunity.

21C for Higher Ed 
At the Education Design Lab, we’ve developed a suite of eight 21st Century Skills Badges. Our experience working with students, educators, and employers produced many takeaways/design criteria about what the badges must encompass to work for all parties. The next phase of our work is relevant for both educators interested in integrating 21st century skills badges, and visionary employers looking to test their efficacy. We share our learning over the last 3 years and different case studies for how to launch, integrate, and issue 21st century skills badges.

Community Based Approaches to Scaling Badges: Summer Youth Employment
