What are digital badges?
Digital badges are a powerful new tool for identifying and validating people’s skills, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies.
A badge is a validated indicator of an accomplishment, skill, quality or interest. From the Boy Scouts, to PADI diving instruction, to popular mobile games and apps, badges have been successfully used to set goals, motivate behaviours, represent achievements and communicate success in many contexts.
A “digital badge” is an online marker of achievement, tracking the recipient’s accomplishments and the work completed to get it. Digital badges can support connected learning environments by motivating new learning pathways and signalling achievements within particular groups as well as across communities and institutions.
Digital badges inspire new pathways to learning and connect learners to opportunities, resources, and one another.
In order to receive a certificate of completion and digital badges for this course, you must complete the end of unit forms.
