  1. The field of badging is a rapidly evolving ecosystem with exciting potential. Its relatively new status also presents challenges for early adopters. Yet our early experiences suggest that badging has tremendous potential to motivate, engage, and acknowledge achievements, accomplishments, and competencies.

  2. Use of portfolios in education has waxed and wanted for decades. Yet, I see three persistent reasons why educators and schools keep coming back to them. While these three reasons are related in that they provide direct evidence of learning and accomplishments, they have three distinct ultimate ends.

  3. Exponential technologies have a tendency to move from a deceptively slow pace of development to a disruptively fast pace. We often disregard or don’t notice technologies in the deceptive growth phase, until they begin changing the way we live and do business. Driven by information technologies,  products and services become digitized, dematerialized, demonetized and/or democratized and enter a phase of exponential growth.

  5. Student portfolios (especially digital versions) are a great idea. By providing the time and the means for students to collect things that document their challenges and successes, students become more meta-cognitive and invested in their growth and learning. However, the reality for many students (and teachers) is that portfolios have become a chore, a stale exercise -- but it doesn't have to be this way.

  6. Will we see an increase in micro-credential adoption? Micro-credentials and open badges continue to gain attention as experiments persist, expand and even move from pilot to full implementation. Yet, a broader adoption of these newer credentials requires progress on many fronts. I see six factors (among many others) as playing a significant role right now. While there are certainly other important factors, these represent common elements that impact the extent to which almost any new technologies reach widespread adoption.

  7. The most recent expansion of the concept and scope of knowledge management was the one into systemic thinking: the turning point was to accept that it’s actually living systems, that contain and embody knowledge. It was key to recognise that knowledge is not confined to individual brains. In opposition to the initial assumption of knowledge being an object, it was recognised that knowledge has very much a volatile characteristic, rather a process, in constant flow and morphing and that it actually rather appears in the interaction and relationship between individuals and thus is property of a system as a whole. As much as this may appear a rather academic discussion, as much is it a real world issue with concrete practical implications – in fact it was the observation of failing practical concepts lagging behind expectations in terms of impact (eg. the aforementioned “black hole” of the first days of knowledge management) that drove the knowledge management evolution. And as a source of “frustration”, wrong conceptual assumptions were identified – like the one of knowledge having a shelf life like any object, which turned out not to be the case. As Kurt Lewin put it, there is nothing so practical as a good theory – however, if the theory is wrong, then the practices won’t work out.

  8. A very detailed article on the structure of badge design.

  10. Badges can slot into a variety of environments and be used in a myriad of ways, and so are the chameleon of the credentialing world. Or maybe they’re the cuttlefish of the credentialing world: able to assume various conceptual shapes and sizes according to their context. Either way, chameleon or cuttlefish, they are unique. For some people this wide ranging flexibility—to grow to the size of a degree and shrink to the size of an essential component—is a feature and for others, it’s a bug. Again, because nothing else has the capacity to be as flexible as this in the current credentialing world.
