Digital Badge Review Meeting 2014
On May 16, 2014 a group of professionals representing various stakeholder viewpoints in workforce education gathered at Los Positas College to discuss the vision and issues relating to giving recognition for skills acquired in both tradition and non-traditional learning venues. It was held as an information sharing session on the topic of Digital Badges with attendees representing a workforce digital badge 'ecosystem'. Digital Badging is an evolving approach that is being explored by many commercial and public entities and was the main topic of conversation at this gathering.
SynED has published a review paper capturing the the vision and enthusiasm of the participants and the potential for for pilot ecosystems to validate the efficacy of digital badges.
