Time to talk about tools

Image uploaded from iOS

Finally the day has come. We are eager to share. We hope you are eager to learn. Today we proudly present 2 tools to help you create Open Badges. We show you why we did them, how we did them and how you can use them. We even show you how you can import and start using our 9 badges in your own organisation/setting.

This way you can learn from our mistakes and get up to speed on creating your own badges. But rest assured. We will not bore you with all the details of what we did and did not do the last five years. Rather, we will give you a distilled version, focusing on what you can use.

You do not want to miss this.

30 minutes of pure gold


We huffed and we puffed, we discussed and we developed. And then we went live.

The beginning was not too promising. The facebook live broadcast would not start. The sound was dead. The image was tilted. And we were heading for a disaster.

Then something happened and everything started working, more or less.

We were live. And we managed to condense two and a half years of development work into a tight 30 minutes of experience sharing. When you watch this broadcast you will get to know our 9 badges, why we made them, how to use them, and how they can help in teacher competence development.

We think our eco-system of badges is really quite good. But don’t take my word for it, check for yourself!

Watch (and share) the recording of the webinar here.

PS, to make the recording more useful we polished the slow start. now it looks quite ok.

If you have comments or questions, head over to our facebook page “Open Badges for Adult Educators” and ask away!

From competence to the badge

With the help of of Nordplus Adult project funding, a group of Open Badge experts in non-formal adult education have developed a systematic approach and created a set of nine badges to validate certain adult educator key competences. They have learnt a lot about criteria, validation procedures, descriptors, quality control and procedures along the way.

Now it’s time to share. We offer 2 live broadcasts on Facebook on 17 and 18 of May, each 45 min long. All secrets will be revealed. And you are invited.

On 17 May 13.00 (Swedish time) we present our 9 badges, what they are, how you can take them, what we learned, and discuss with you about how to use them. You are most welcome to participate! The day is open to all. If you have created a badge (or several) or are in the process of making them, this broadcast is for you!

On 18 May 13.00 (Swedish time) we present our tools, the criteria guide that is open for all to use.
