Open Badges for Foreign Language Education

Introduction to earning and issuing open digital badges.

Open digital badges are online representations of earned knowledge and skills. Badges make it easy to validate and make visible the variety of learning that happens in formal and informal contexts. Most importantly, they have the potential to help change how we assign value to what, where, and how people learn. This website provides an introduction to badges and guidance for educators who want to begin earning and creating open digital badges.
