Badge Alliance : La force du mouvement des badges numériques ouverts

OpenBadge-Badgealliance-10mbetterfuture

Le mouvement des badges numériques ouverts (OpenBadges) de Mozilla a été lancé en 2011 et est, depuis 2013, en pleine croissance. Tellement qu’ils ont décidé de créer, en février 2014, Badge Alliance, une communauté d’intérêts basée sur les principes d’une constellation pour le changement social collaboratif (Constellation Model of Collaborative Social Change).

Ainsi, 10 (+1) groupes de travail ont été lancés afin de permettre le développement des formats ouverts des badges numériques et de faire grandir l’écosystème et d’accompagner le développement d’une culture de l’apprentissage tout au long de la vie (Long Life Learning).

5 groupes de travail orientés sur l’infrastructure des badges numériques ouverts

  • ENDORSEMENT : Exploring how to build functionality and practice around third party endorsement of badges. As one of the most frequently discussed questions around open badges, endorsement will be a crucial part of expanding the ecosystem and connecting key stakeholders to badges and adding to the value of badges in the wild.
  • OPEN BADGES INFRASTRUCTURE : Maintaining and developing the technical infrastructure that supports open badge systems.
  • OPEN BADGES MESSAGING : Exploring ways to talk consistently and effectively about badges to different audiences. From looking at the preferred vocabulary of various fields and industries to finding the right ‘language’ to convey badge concepts to specific groups, this group’s work will support and empower the work of all the working groups as well as the Badge Alliance itself as we move forward with growing the open badge ecosystem.
  • OPEN BADGES RESEARCH : Based on the evolution of the efforts of the Mozilla Open Badges team towards building a research base around badges and badge system design thinking. This group will be leading the ongoing work of exploring and expanding research on open badges.
  • OPEN BADGES STANDARD : Shaping the evolution of the open badge standard. To date, the standard has been a series of technical specifications. The goal of this group is to move the specifications towards a standard that is clearer and easier to align with, maintain, and build from.

 6 groupes de travail orientés sur l’écosystème des badges numériques ouverts

  • BADGES FOR EDUCATORS & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT : Finding ways to connect badges to granular recognition for educators who innovate and pursue continued professional development. The work will inform and support educators in their efforts and help with the recognition of their innovation through badges.
  • BADGES FOR HIGHER EDUCATION : Finding ways to get badges included in the admissions evaluation process for higher education as well as credentialing course content and informal learning experiences. This group will focus on informing and supporting institutions of further and higher education to recognize badges earned by students at the secondary level and beyond.
  • CITIES & NETWORK-WIDE BADGE SYSTEMS : Building and connecting badge systems across cities and other networks. This working group will reflect the growing momentum of the Cities of Learning initiative and find ways to leverage badge systems across networks and cities to create a more connected, richer learning network for learners to tap into.
  • DIGITAL & WEB LITERACIES : Encouraging the growth of a shared badge system (or systems) for promoting and recognizing important digital skills. This group will focus on developing and connecting badge systems for 21st-century digital skills and web literacies that often aren’t captured by traditional credentials and formal degrees.
  • GLOBALIZATION, LOCALIZATION & BADGE THE WORLD : Encouraging and supporting badging in other countries and cultures. This includes building out the localization efforts our community started over the past few years to make badges and badging resources accessible to non-English speakers, as well as supporting globalization efforts of other organizations.
  • WORKFORCE & ACCEPTANCE BY EMPLOYERS : Exploring the ways to link badges to jobs, internships, career advancement and other opportunities within the workforce.

10 millions better futures

Open badges : 10 M better futures est un programme qui veut atteindre, d’ici 2 ans, le chiffre magique de 10 millions d’étudiants/travailleurs qui ont utilisé les badges numériques. (il y en a actuellement 4 millions après un peu plus d’une année).

Voilà un projet ambitieux et possible !
