Digital Badges in Adult Education
Digital badges are being used by educational institutions to recognize learner’s skills, experiences, and knowledge. This session will examine the potential of digital badging in adult education. We will begin this session with a definition of digital badges and a discussion of research which supports badging as a motivation for learners. Attendees will learn how to create, award, collect, and share digital badges they and their learners earn. There will be an open discussion on the possibilities of what digital badges would mean to learners as they prepare to transition to college or career.
