A nonprofit that tests out new models of education and credentials has launched a free digital badge toolkit. The goal: to help schools outfit students with the skills employers are seeking. Education Design Lab’s 21st century skills badge program covers eight microcredentials as well as facilitation tools. The badges are intended to be used on students’ LinkedIn accounts, resumes and e-portfolios. In return, schools that use the badges agree to adhere to the specific language in their definitions, use a “360 assessment” at the beginning of the badge-earning process and share metrics and what they’ve learned in the process.
