At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
An introduction to open badges.
*Soon to be part of the School of Badges here at P2PU.
Your goals include: joining and participate in the Google group, getting connected with companies like Badgestack, reading related books and articles, blogging as a means of documenting my learning, and starting conversations about badges on Twitter and FB.
posted message: Hello. I'm new to the P2PU and thought this challenge would be a good start in understanding the concept. I don't now if this was the forum were we are supposed to participate, but if not i'll probably find it with your help.
posted message: Hello everyone- just a reminder for those participating in/who have participated in 101 What are Open Badges? There are 3 submissions waiting for reviewers. Please pop in if you have time so we can get these folks their badges. :)
posted message: Hello everyone. I have updated Badges 101: What are Open Badges? a bit since its development last year. I updated the graphics to match the new scheme we are laying out for School of Badges (http://leahmacvie.com/category/projseries/badges/). In the updating, I realized I could condense some of the tasks into one and delete the previous tasks. I put the previous conversations into a Google doc for folks to reference if they needed: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17pLbQvYh6TwdP7rKfbjWxgZqv09WEt2_1-bsOvjsWhI/edit
Thanks for your continued encouragement and participation. Please email me with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
posted message: Hi, Leah. I guess I earned my badge (thanks to Richard and Andrea and Leah for reviewing!). However, if I was notified about completion, I did not see it in the email.
More importantly, I'm really having trouble adding it to my backpack. I've added 3 other badges, but don't seem to be able to load this one.
posted message: Hi all,
I just wanted to check in. I know I have been absent from the boards. I have been working hard- going back to school and, more importantly, on developing more courses for our upcoming School of Open Badges (read more here). Keep up the great work!
posted message: Hello, I'm intrigued and wary. A higher ed institution I work at as an Instructional Designer is exploring MOOCs (who isn't?), which has led to a proposed visit to Mozilla, which has led me to explore badges. This course caught my eye: As a critical thinking English teacher I decided to practice what I preach to my students; open your mind and learn about a topic, then develop a logical response based on reliable sources. Onward!
posted message: Forgive me if my question is sophomoric, but I'm fairly new to P2PU; which badge can I earn by taking this course? Wouldn't it seem logical that the Open Badges course awards you a badge in the end? It wasn't immediately clear if there was a badge for successfully completing this course.
