Our Community Badges

Earning badges for learning new things is a way to display knowledge and skills. At the moment we have released three light blue ‘CommunityBadges’:

Supporter Contributor Scholar
  • Supporter (A person who supports, promotes, advocates or champions a cause or movement)
  • Contributor (A person who backs, supports or champions a cause, activity or institution)
  • Scholar (A specialist in a particular branch of knowledge)

These ‘Community Badges’ only have value for our community and recognize the work that has been done by participants in the P2PU course “eduToolkit . Teachers Open Online Learning“.  As soon as Mozilla’s Open Badges project allow organizations to issue digital badges, this will allow students to collect badges from different sources and display them across the web – on their resume, web site, social networking profiles, job sites or just about anywhere.  We will soon have green ‘Skill Badges’ available that are compatible with Mozilla’s ‘Open Badge Infrastructure’. The first three modules will continue our work with ‘Teachers Open Online Learning’ and focus on the concept of ‘The Networked Teacher’:

  • Certified Networked Teacher [ #CNT12]– Use of Web Tools
  • Advanced Networked Teacher – Syndicated Education
  • Expert Networked Teacher – Central Node in Learning

Details about who earned ‘Community Badges’ will be availabel in our ‘Hall of fame‘ as an official recognition of particiapants.
