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
Follow Anthony, who claims the same open badges as his apprentices
Anthony – 28 years old – trainer in hydraulics and water treatment
He will allow his apprentices to discover the world of FabLabs and allow them to get open badges to recognize their learning.
Anthony works at the apprentice training center of Maniac en Bigorre. He is recently interested in FabLabs after discovering one at the teacher training center in Toulouse.
He is looking for colleagues who have the same interest in the subject or who already have a FabLab in their school. He will be responsible for creating a collaborative space to share documents, resources and interact with colleagues. He publishes an open badge FabLab Explorer in the Open Badge Passport Gallery. This allows him to connect with people outside agricultural education who work in third places.
He goes to the FabLab of the neighboring city with his apprentices to learn to use the different machines. Anthony and his apprentices get Open Badges for what they have learned together.
Some apprentices have voluntarily returned to the FabLab to continue training. Even if these badges did not count in the diploma, they counted in the evaluation of their motivation by their trainers and their supervisors.
Open badges are good tools to recognize informal learning
