DESCRIPTION

The presentation provides an introduction to the Open badges concept - working from the basic concept of badges, then digital badges and final open digital badges. Then looks at how the Open Badges concept has led to its adoption by various Professional Development groups around the world thus putting into context the current efforts by TESOL Arabia’s Education Technology sig to realize the same. The presentation’s prime purpose is to share these efforts and to invite participant feedback and involvement. It seeks to first explain how such a strategy can promote professional development pursuits by EFL educators, encourage them to share those efforts with EFL educators in the region, and to have those efforts formally recognized so that they stimulate networking amongst those same EFL educators. That appreciation may extend beyond one’s immediate peers, to include the community of EFL educators in the region plus school administrators, and potentially even ministry officials and future employers. It outlines the current state of the TAEDTECH sig’s efforts to realize Open Badges. It notes important hurdles discovered to date; hurdles that will need to be addressed if the implementation of the concept is to be realized and successful. It concludes by inviting participant input / feedback on the matter and offers suggestions on how individuals can contribute to help realize or shape the concept.
