  1. A group of B.C. educational leaders have begun identifying digital literacy standards for our learners. These standards identify the knowledge and skills learners need to be successful in the 21st century. The group’s goal was also to identify how to better use technology as a teaching and learning tool.

  2. 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.

  3. Beginning this summer, e-portfolio usage will be embedded into as many touchpoints as possible. For example, during their orientation, students will be introduced to a self-paced video module about e-portfolios, which explains what they are and how they're used, among other topics. Right from the start, an organizational behavior course will have first-year students begin their e-portfolios by writing an autobiography and a leadership purpose statement. And in a business environments class, which covers ethics and law, students will undertake a "multi-stakeholder" business-problem research project and put their work into the e-portfolio.

    In year two, students will develop content about personal strengths in a "team processes" class, and for an "innovation for shared value" class, they will create a presentation to persuade a board of directors about a state-of-the-art innovation process. The products from both of those efforts will land in the e-portfolio.

  4. How could Open Badges Transform ePortfolio Practices and Technologies! from Serge Ravet Looking at the history of ePortfolio practice and technologies over the last 10 years, one is entitled in asking: what has changed? Is the ePortfolio technology we have today that different from what we had 10 years ago?

  6. We’ve been working on the Mozilla Webmaker badge system, or at least initial alpha badges for the Summer Campaign and it’s tough! We knew that going in - if it were too easy, then we probably wouldn’t end up with very valuable or robust badges - but that didn’t make it easier. There are many things to consider and it’s very easy to get caught up and stuck in the core question of what badges?  That’s a really loaded question because its not just about what to call the badges - which is a rabbit hole of itself altogether - but its also considerations around specific skills, levels and granularity (which is a huge/tough one), assessment, experience, etc. We spent days trying to answer the what badges question - should we have an HTML Level 1 and Level 2 badge, or just an HTML badge (and what do those mean?)?; should we call them Ninjas or Samurais (note: we decided on neither)?, is there a Webmaker badge that everything aggregates up to and if so what are the badges that make that up?; are all badges the same granularity?, etc. The decisions at this level are also things that more people care about and have to sign off on so that also slows down the process.

  7. The effort to define “eportfolio” as a model of learning is impaired by naming a learning idea after a technology. Within the group of people who understand “eportfolio” to be a learning idea, we can succeed in defining “the eportfolio idea.” It is a bit of a strain and a stretch, but we have learned to live with a concept of “eportfolio” that at least we in the field can understand.

  8. PACE is a first-in-the-nation accountability strategy that offers a reduced level of standardized testing together with locally developed common performance assessments. These assessments are designed to support deeper learning through competency education, and to be more integrated into students’ day-to-day work than current standardized tests. Meaningful assessment is a key part of a strategy to ensure students are getting the most out of their education.

    This K-12 system will build on New Hampshire’s competency work, including the development of statewide college and career ready competencies, and will be one component of the New Hampshire student assessment system. The PACE accountability option provides districts with an alternative route of demonstrating measurable progress in student outcomes in the New Hampshire competencies, the Work-Study Practices, and other important measures. It enables districts to emphasize meaningful content, high quality instruction, and deep student engagement. The PACE option will have multiple components, but performance assessment will be a central feature. In this first year, PACE districts will report on ELA, mathematics, science, and the Work-Study Practices. As New Hampshire develops further competencies, social studies, the arts, and other content areas will become a part of the PACE system.

  9. Competencies are specific and observable learning outcomes. The goal of competency-based learning is to ensure that students are able to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions that are important to success in school, higher education, careers, and life.

    The Remake Learning Competencies form the foundation of learning pathways that connect students to opportunities offered by schools, afterschool programs, cultural organizations, and online learning resources. By working together across boundaries, organizations offering learning experiences—in school, out of school, and online—can create pathways to opportunity for all students.

  10. he University of Notre Dame will share its pilots and preliminary results that explore the intersection of digital badges and ePortfolios in order to create a more relevant currency between today's colleges and employers. Our employer advisory board focus group results will be presented to show how and when today's employers want to utilize the ePortfolio to assist in the hiring process. In addition, we will present our initial challenges and lessons learned through the design and implementation of using digital badges and ePortfolios with our business college to capture, recognize, channel and specifically connect student career ePortfolios with evidence-based skills for the employer stakeholder.
