A one-year study by an Indiana University School of Education assistant professor will help provide insight into how systems for recognizing skills and knowledge work well or need revision for use in online social communities. The HASTAC Digital Media and Learning Competition has awarded Sean Duncan, faculty member in the Learning Sciences program, a nearly $100,000 award to examine “digital badges” in spaces such as Twitter and Reddit. His study “Connecting Badges and Expertise in Interest-Driven Affinity Spaces” starts in May as part of the School of Education’s Center for Research on Learning and Technology.
