Mozilla, Open Badges and a Learning Standard for Web Literacy


Today learning happens everywhere, not just in classrooms. However, it’s often difficult to get formal recognition for this kind of learning and to present it in a meaningful way. The Mozilla Foundation has been working for the last two years on an emergent ecosystem to provide a distributed way to demonstrate learning via the Web. This system is Open Badges and constitutes a new inclusive standard to recognise and verify learning throughout interdisciplinary knowledge networks. In addition, Mozilla is working with the community to define a new, open learning standard for Web Literacy.

In this talk, Doug Belshaw will explain what prompted Mozilla to undertake work around Open Badges and Web Literacy, how delegates can get involved in Mozilla’s work and what’s next.
