Today learning happens everywhere and the skills learned outside of the formal curriculum are just as important to employers as qualifications. Badge the UK
is a new project which will enable learners to demonstrate all their achievements using digital (open) badges.
Funded by Nominet Trust
, over the next two years we will be helping teachers, employers and social enterprises to badge their learning programmes and provide an easy way for any teacher to award the badges they create nationwide.What are Open Badges?
Mozilla Open Badges are digital awards for young people aged 13 and over that can be earned on various websites and online platforms. You can also display them on any website that uses them. Mozilla's Open Badges make it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web through a shared infrastructure that's free and open to all.How can my school use Open Badges?
