Webinar on Open Badges | Open Badges Is there a future for Open Badges? Webinar on 26 November 2015 at 10.00 AM CET Sales pitch We learn everyday, all the time. In adult education we separate between formal, non-formal and informal learning. Non-formal learning has long prided itself with its freedom to focus on individual needs. For the learner these distinctions are less important. The idea behind Open Badges is simple. The webinar includes a presentation by Ilona Buchem (PhD), professor in residence for Digital Media & Diversity at Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. All participants will receive a participation badge. The webinar lasts for 60 minutes. Register here: no later than 20 November. Hope to see you there! Like this: Like Loading...

Just think, these students will have a digital archive of their learning, but not only that, they will have comments from friends and family members that they can revisit in years to come. 4. We need a digital space to demonstrate new methods of learning using Web tools. 5. Amazing or what?
