Designing Online Activities’s Docs Assessment One thing I did in the past 24 hours that makes me feel good about myself. What this shows.

So yesterday I concentrated on creating a system on Youth Voices that would allow teachers and students to recognize each other for the skills they are showing in their work. Now anybody can go and create a “skill” for others. This reaches back to our early work with P2PU badges and brings the knowledge we’ve gained with issuing hundreds of badges through LRNG. What, I’ve been asking, persists, and equally important, what restraints or limitations could we overcome in a new system?

One thing is that badges can make clear our expectations and if everybody — students and teachers — can make a badge (or a skill) available on Youth Voices, then all of us can be involved in the process of making our values and standards clear to each other.

Too often the achievements (badges, micro-credentials, skills, quests…) are little more than a recognition that a student has completed his assignments.
