Our column on Digital Badges: Recognizing, Assessing, and Motivating Learners In and Out of School Contexts was just published in JAAL. I co-wrote the column with Katerina Schenke, James E. Willis, and Daniel Hickey.
As a supplement to the column, we invited a series of experts to spend some time discussing the broader impact of the details presented. The end result is a series of short video segments of the experts responding to a set of four questions about the column. You can review the video interview and four questions used at the bottom of this post.
Four Questions for Marc Lesser
1. How would you describe/define digital badges?
2. Please explain MOUSE, and the various iterations of MOUSE.
3. How do badges, and the badging ecosystem support and modify the goals, objectives, and ethos of MOUSE?
4. How did the badging ecosystem at MOUSE begin….and what considerations did “you” have while planning, issuing, and iterating on badges? AKA…what advice do you have for others as they consider their own badges and ecosystem?
