What value can open badges provide

Open badges are important for both education and business, providing a verifiable means of measuring an individual's skills and achievements, supporting lifelong learning and a culture of recognition and reward.

Providing a credible and portable way to showcase one's abilities to employers, educators, and other stakeholders in a transparent and verifiable manner.

Supporting development through lifelong learning

Recognition and communication of skills and achievements acquired outside of traditional education pathways, motivating learners to pursue further development and education.

Building a culture of recognition & reward

Building if evidence of participation, achievements, and skills, which can motivate learners and encourage further learning and participation, through the recognition of informal learning.

Interoperable promotion of transferable skills

Showcasing and recognition of skills across different contexts and platforms, providing a standardized language for communicating, verifying, and acknowledging skills and achievements.

Motivational gamification of students & workers

Incentivized learning and achievements by providing a tangible, shareable, and verifiable representation of individuals skills, participation, and accomplishments.

Quantifiable display of micro-credentials

Standardized and portable way to represent and communicate the minor courses, vocational skills, and other non-formal educational achievements an individual has earned.

Supporting the rise of open badges,

At the NGDIL we promote the value open badges can bring in providing verifiable evidence of individual skills and abilities for individuals. Through the introduction of open badges, academic institutions, as well as businesses, can create environments that encourage and support continued development in professional and educational settings.

When coupled with micro-credentials, self-sovereign identity, and other emerging standards and technologies, open badges can give value to achievements and skills that have previously gone unaccredited. Supporting personal and professional growth and contributing to a lifelong learning culture that values diversity and inclusion.
