As I continue to follow the debates and developments around open badges, the most disappointing element for me has been that we have yet to see significant traction around digital badges as means of democratizing credentials. That is about to change. It is only matter of time before the right people connect open badges with the spirit of a century-old concept known as the study circle (and many modern day derivatives). When this happens, I believe that we will see a true learning revolution.
...the term OER, according to The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, represents the "teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge."
What is content curation, in this video we look at what content curation is and then look at some examples of content curation.
Videoz is a video portal created specifically for K12 students and teachers.
In online spaces this means that individuals consider elements of multimodal information (images, video, audio, and text), markers of credibility and relevance, other websites or information found online…along with prior knowledge about the author or institution to determine “value” and “authority” in what they’re reading, using, or learning. In the world of digital badges I believe these considerations of value and cognitive authority are hugely important. There is still a certain amount of reticence, skepticism, and confusion involved as individuals consider and cognitively “grasp” digital badging systems.
