Badges badges badges. I’ve just finished my β€œstarter pack” of digital badges for my EdD research project. Pleased with how they look. I did the graphics myself, so it’ll be interesting to see if the students have any feedback on the visual aspect later on. I stuck in a few β€œmystery badges” too, because I’d like the students to come up with some ideas to add to the pack as it evolves. #openbadge #openbadges #open #digital #badge #edtech #learning #highered

I read the thing about tagging yourself to help newcomers, but I'm so two-dimensional I'm concerned I'll just look a bit tragic.

I'm working on a doctorate at the moment, which involves thinking about how digital open badges might be useful for my students. As part of my data gathering, I wanted a consistent way to introduce open badges to each interviewee, so I searched for a short video to use. I couldn't find one short enough that didn't have branding, so I made my own. You can have a look at it here:
