Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Badges but Were Afraid to Ask

Wednesday, February 06 | 10:20AM–10:40AM
Session Type: Professional Development

Open badges: this concept can be explosive in an educational environment. During this session, Mozilla will lay bare the successes, challenges, and failures of the Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI) project during the last year. We'll also cover our OBI dogfooding initiative, Webmaker badges, and how learning outcomes can be overshadowed by a badge-zealous public. Audiences are vital to our conversation, and we encourage as much interaction and discussion as possible during this session. We look forward to hearing your questions, comments, and concerns about open badges.
