Open Badges: 2014 Goal for Professional Development

My goal this year is to leverage ‘Open Badges’ at the high school level to demonstrate where a student may acquire a skill.

This update in. The NYTimes post was too old so I include a more relevant piece from yesterday on GettingSmart, one caution on all of this is that this process is just beginning and the well funded publishers and certificate authorities will start the show; however, the final word will be from the crowd as always. 

I am including the post as the last post contained links that disappeared.  Thanks to the sharp eyed reader who pointed this out.
