Open Badges are a relatively new concept in UK education - both formal and informal. Unlike in the US where there are a number of DML Competition-funded projects mid-way through their work, there is only one of these in the UK (Supporter2Reporter). Nevertheless, there are a number of people already doing some work in the area.
This session will allow participants to discuss how badges might be used within a UK context, as well as facilitate partnerships and understanding between diverse organisations. We'd like to get people thinking through badge system design in their particular context(s) and have a go at creating a badge in the session itself.
This session will be divided into two, one-hour sessions:
Project Lead at Mozilla Open Badges, tambourine, orange, sriracha, costumes (on others, not me), soup, good eats, friends, your #1 fan bio from Twitter
Co-founder & Chief Maker of DIY.org Co-founder of Detroit's first hackerspace, OmniCorp Detroit
Badges & Skills Lead for the Mozilla Foundation. Raising money for Cancer Research in 2013: bit.ly/LettingGrow
