In today’s world, learning happens everywhere. This makes it difficult to gain recognition for skills and achievements acquired outside of traditional learning environments. Mozilla’s Open Badges is aimed at addressing this challenge by making it easier to issue, earn and display badges across the Web. The goal is to broaden understanding of 21st century skills, unlock career and educational opportunities, and help learners everywhere get ahead in their lives and work. In this session, the Mozilla Open Badges Product/Partner manager will provide an overview of their plan to position digital badges as a method for recognizing and verifying skills and helping learners share their achievements with employers, schools, colleagues, and community members. The session welcomes questions from the members of the audience.
