Scientists agree that the future of recognition will be much more owned and managed by learners. There will be recognition for even a tiny, but important experiences gained throughout the entire life and it will help to paint a better picture of every person.
Actually, the future has arrived! Open badges can do just that! You can create an open badge for the experience that matter and offer anyone to earn it. You will define the criteria. A digital badge can be earned for participation, for learning, for certain behaviour or common work in a team.
Digital Badges are an integral part of the "Cities of Learning" platform. When you create an activity - a badge is generated for you automatically with a beautiful design. The badge will have the same name as your activity, it will use activity cover image for the badge design. By default, the badge can be earned by scanning a QR code.
Just click "edit" and you can change settings of the badge. You can ask people to add evidence: reflection or a photo or video. You can set up who should approve that evidence as well!
Watch a video and read links below to learn the basics about open badges. Click on the Badge booklets and you can see examples of how badges look like for various programmes.
Badgecraft hosts this platform and develops it together with leading educational organisations. The European Union's programme Erasmus+ granted co-funding for building the first version of this platform. Contact email@example.com.
