Mozilla Open Badges: Putting You in Control
The Gamification Summit - The Concourse Exhibition Center
Sunny Lee, Product/Partner Manager at Mozilla, discusses Mozilla's Open Badges program. In today's world, learning happens everywhere. This makes it difficult to gain recognition for skills and achievements acquired outside of traditional learning environments. Mozilla's Open Badges is aimed at addressing this challenge by making it easier to issue, earn and display badges across the Web. The goal is to broaden understanding of 21st century skills, unlock career and educational opportunities, and help learners everywhere get ahead in their lives and work. In this session, Lee provides an overview of Mozilla's plan to position digital badges as a method for recognizing and verifying skills and helping learners share their achievements with employers, schools, colleagues, and community members. The session welcomes questions from the members of the audience."
