Po(n)dering the future of badges

badge_pod

Open Badges are here to stay, or so it seems. Everywhere we go there is interest, and questions, and development suggestions. It is not to say that Badges are immediately implemented and will (or should) replace other forms of validation.

Shifting the way we see and understand things is a slow process. That is good. We should consider the implications carefully, and not plunge headfirst into everything new for the sake of it. So as we prod along there are times when the process can seem unnervingly slow, or indeed even halted. To combat that feeling of despair and to lift our eyes from the ground a bit we sat down after a nice evening together, in a small cosy hotel room in Stockholm, and started to share our experiences, thoughts, visions and more, on Badges today and tomorrow.

The result is a rather endearing podcast, which I hereby invite you to listen to, and reflect upon.
