I have had a number of people ask me to share a 'table-of-contents' for my blog posts on why and how we should abolish grading. Here is a list of blog posts that should help you gain insight into this whole abolishing grading topic.

Created in 2007, the Digital Media and Learning Competition is designed to find and inspire the most innovative uses of new media in support of connected learning . Connected learning happens in and out of school, in physical places and in online spaces, and is: motivating because it is connected to people's interests and passions; and social in nature because it involves interacting, providing feedback, and sharing with others; and typically occurs during tangible, hands-on, creative activities that are open and discovery-based; and often involves connections among learners, adult mentors, and more advanced peers as teachers. Projects supported by the Competition explore how digital technologies are changing the way people learn and participate in daily life, through interaction with each other in connected, participatory ways, often involving the production and not just the consumption of knowledge, ideas, designs, and artifacts.
During our first live, interactive Badges 101 webinar , we received over 100 questions through email, Twitter, comments, and the webinar chat box. We invited our Badges for Lifelong Learning team to jump in and answer your questions, and will continue posting the remaining questions throughout the week.
Last Thursday I presented on a Badges 101 webinar run by HASTAC.
