Credential Engine is a Foundational Building Block for Expanded Recognition of Learning Credentials. Learning credentials come in all shapes and sizes today, ranging from digital badges to doctoral degrees.
Yet schools and employers are only just beginning to understand the value of non-traditional credentials. It is interesting that in a time when the media often questions the value of traditional higher education degrees, there is not a lot of coverage about the quickly expanding world of learning credentials that are smaller than the Associates or Bachelors Degree (such as Certificates, MOOCs, digital badges, etc). Deeper Learning for All: Five things to do more of. A couple of weeks into term and, so far, I’ve had the privilege of observing 40 or more lessons.

This knowledge can also bring with it a certain dystopian fear about robots and technology “taking over”. While we should always strive to be cautious with new technologies, our concerns should also be tempered by understanding the long curve of development that typically precedes these seemingly overnight maturings of technology. I've been reading Artificial Intelligence in Education, a 2019 publication by Wayne Holmes, Maya Bialik, and Charles Fadel, that explores implications of AI in the realm of teaching and learning.
