Open Badges for Assessing Learning

In this video I compare two Open Badge Infrastructures (OBI) as a badge issuer. Open Badge Factory (https://openbadgefactory.com/) and Badge List (http://www.badgelist.com/).

The main question is to what extent were autonomy, diversity, openness and interactivity present?

Further discussion should involve:

  • How to avoid badge inflation / flooding the system / loss of meaning?
  • How to avoid fragmentation: having badges trapped in their issuing environments
  • How to manage badges – Who can create / issue badges?
  • How to evaluate the impact of badges in the community?

This Office Mix presentation will look at assessment and lessonplans in two different LMS. As an “Advanced Networked Teacher” you can use ICT to assess students’ acquisition of knowledge, and to provide students with feedback on their progress using both formative and summative assessment. There is also a requirement to incorporate appropriate ICT activities into lesson plans.
