What

"Learning today happens everywhere. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen online or out of school. Mozilla Open Badges help solve that problem, making it easy for any organization to issue, manage and display digital badges across the web." Mozilla Foundation.

What is a Learning Badge?

UNIQUE Learning Badges is working on an international quality standard for badge issuers. The project partners are working alongside other organisations to develop guidelines for quality recognition of non-formal learning within the European youth work context.

Currently you may refer to the "Digital Badge Design Principles for Recognizing Learning" by Andi Rehak and Daniel Hickey

Badge design principles

UNIQUE Learning Badges are using Mozilla Open Badges standard. Currently you may learn more about Open Badges by enrolling into Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) "Badges - New Currency for Professional Credentials"

Open badge

Digital badges are visual representations of learning outcomes and achievements. They are more than just a simple image online! Each individual badge has attached information with a description and identified evidence of learning.
How
Using an online platform you can offer the recognition for what your learners have learnt offline and online.

In a society where more and more learning is an unavoidable condition of life, one must learn to learn, i.e. learn to manage and economise one´s own learning. UNIQUE Learning Badges uses resources from the L2L project here.
