Open Badges – describing my employment

If I was travelling on a journey from London to Glasgow, a set of prescriptive badges could mark the milestones to aim for (got out of London, passed Birmingham, reached Glasgow). A set of descriptive badges might encapsulate some of the valuable things experienced along the way (visited a National Trust stately home, invented a game that entertained the kids for 3 hours, single handedly fixed a flat-tyre with no jack…)

Of course, one person’s descriptive badge could well become another’s prescriptive badge…

This thinkery was inspired by Patrina Law, Head of Free Learning at the Open University.

Gold, Silver, Bronze, yawn…

This (standard) approach prevents the issuing organisation from having to think too deeply about how learners might interact with what they’ve got to offer.

There’s more than one way to string together some badges.
