What is a digital badge?
A digital badge is a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest that can be earned in many learning environments. Open digital badging makes it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web – through an infrastructure that uses shared and open technical standards.

The world is changing fast and, today more than ever, traditional modes of assessment fail to capture the learning that happens everywhere and at every age. Digital badges are a powerful new tool for identifying and validating the rich array of people's skills, knowledge, accomplishments and competencies. Digital badges inspire new pathways to learning and connect learners to opportunities, resources and one another.

The LeCroy Center presented a free professional development webinar on Open Educational Digital Badges on Feb. 23. Richard E. West, an Associate Professor at Brigham Young University was the featured speaker. West teaches courses in instructional design, technology integration, evaluation and research methods. He currently conducts research in open badges for preservice teacher education, online learning communities and learning environments to promote group creativity. He is the co-developer of the IPT Ed Tee badges.
