Describe the section
Use case 1 - Building a learning community around digital practices within agricultural education schools
With this project that will start in September 2019 in France, we show how opening recognition can help to foster collaboration and sharing of digital practices in the education field, between teachers, trainers and learners. We give examples of how informal recognition is empowering the members and how they can get recognition from outside their community.
- Follow Fabien who is to going to build his personal recognition space
- Follow Sophie who wants to develop her skills on GIS
- Follow Christophe who wants to show his commitment to a project
- Follow Anthony, who claims the same open badges as his apprentices
- Follow Philippe, he created his own badge to claim a skill
- Follow Michèle, looking for testimonies on digital practices
- Follow Antoine whose illustrator talent was discovered by his headmaster
Use case 2 - Open badges uses in a FabLab
A network or community remains active only if it is alive and animated. Here again, Open badges offer uses that remain to be developed. The first that comes to mind is gamification [the principle of level / reward badges is a legacy of video games and role plays, note].
Examples of quirky or rare badges.
This dimension of animation uses is also to be considered in the service of communication or marketing. It is possible to embody the spirit of an event, a game, a team. Badges also lend themselves to the principles of collectible cards or vignettes that, combined with “scarcity” effects, can activate public engagement or project life.
