I have written an initial blog post in response to this morning's webinar. It does not directly answer the criteria in the Homework!!! So I will endeavour to write more posts as I progress. This post is an introduction to the topic of Digital Badges for my readers and helps to clarify the topic for me.
My post can be read on Sprite's Site blog at http://www.giftedresources.org/jo/blog/?p=3871
Love the blog post(s)... so great to be involved in a seminar series with people who are creatives! Great insights, helpful fo rme to read that many of the things I believe are important around badges are being understood.
Here is the second blog post about digital badges which touches on motivation and perceived gender issues as well as using badges to accredit learning in maybe non traditional school subjects
Just for a bit of fun - Tweetil is trying to earn the Little Drummer Boy badge!
