Learning today happens everywhere. But it’s often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen online or out of school. Mozilla Open Badges helps solve that problem, making it easy for any organization to issue, manage and display digital badges across the web.
Tara Brown (taratigerbrown.com) will give an overview of her research into the motivations and results of interest based learning, and Chris McAvoy (lonelylion.com) will provide a technical overview of the Mozilla Open Badges infrastructure, as a solution to the legitimization of interest based learning.
