P2Pu School of Badges[edit]

About[edit]

The School of Badges brings together eight courses to assist people in understanding open badges. The skills developed from within the school are focused upon understanding badges, issuing, earning and displaying badges, badge systems design, and the technical aspects of implementing open badges. The courses are designed to be self-directed and peer based. Each course issues an open badge upon completion.

Rationale[edit]

What are the rationale behind creating the school of badges?

  1. Comprehensiveness - provide people a complete set of courses to explore all the aspects of open and digital badges (from getting started through technical implementation). The set of courses should be run and hosted from within a shared platform that facilitates peer based learning.
  2. Learning Pathways - offer a set of courses that provide steps along a learning journey allowing the learner to build an understanding of badges best suited to their needs. The learning pathway should be flexible in that they can develope their own scenarios when deepening their understanding of open and digital badges.
  3. Collaboration (peer based learning) - utilize a platform that encourages peer based learning and allows people to engage at a frequency and depth best suited for their personal needs. Discussion and collaboration should be a foundational feature of the learning environment.
  4. Promotion - align the school of badges with P2Pu for mutual benefit. Add content, learners and traffic to P2Pu while following the P2Pu approach in building a school. The build-out of the courses within the School of Badges is a volunteer effort; and P2Pu benefits from these added courses (content) and provides a platform for their promotion. The school also aligns with P2Pu increasing use of open badges to recognize accomplishments.

Roadmap[edit]

What we hope to accomplish within the following timeframes. Keeping in mind this is a volunteer effort.

3 months[edit]

  1. finish development of 201 - earn badges, display badges
  2. run 301 - badge system design as a course (not a challenge)
  3. increase traffic on 102 and 301
    1. 102 will have 5 badges issued
    2. 301 will have 5 badges issued
  4. P2Pu splash page will have been developed. Learning pathways within the school will have been identified
  5. deploy 101, 102, 201 and 301 as the school of badges
  6. crowd funding effort will have been initiated - this needs discussion

6 months[edit]

  1. finish development of 302 - bubbling your badge system
  2. finish development of 402 - manual issue
  3. increase traffic over the whole school of badges
    1. 101 will have a total of 20 issued badges and > 300 participants
    2. 102 will have a total of 10 issued badges and > 80 participants
    3. 201 will have a total of 5 issued badges and > 30 participants
    4. 301 will have a total of 10 issued badges and > 70 participants
  4. 302 and 402 will have been integrated into the school of badges
  5. we will have integrated another peer course developer into the school of badges

12 months[edit]

  • Actively encourage engagement in the five of eight courses
    • further develop engagement strategy and school promotion
    • increase badge issuing rates
  • Encourage the community to identify and develop other courses
  • Complete development of another of the three remaining courses

18 months[edit]

  • Actively encourage engagement in the six of eight courses
  • Encourage the community to identify and develop other courses
  • Complete development of the two remaining courses
