Recorded: April 10, 2012
We are living in an age of opportunity for learning, specialization and innovation like none ever seen before. How do we connect interest-driven learning, as well as new skills and literacies, to a broader ecosystem of accreditation and recognition to enable each learner to capitalize on the learning experiences that they are already having, or to inspire and help them to seek out new ones, as well as to communicate their achievements and skills to necessary stakeholders? A digital badge ecosystem could play a critical role for diverse learners across the Web, and help translate that learning into a powerful tool for getting jobs, finding communities of practice, demonstrating skills or seeking out further learning.
