Digital Badges

Digital Badges

A digital badge is a great way you can share your professional development achievements with others. After you receive a badge you can add it to your email signature or digital resume and post it on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

 

Micro-Credentials

When you share your badge, employers can easily look up your skills and expertise – otherwise known as your credentials.

The digital micro-credential is the skills and knowledge evidence behind the digital badge. When you’re issued a digital badge, it consists of two parts: a picture (representing the skill) and a text description (which is the credential). This text description is made up of something called metadata – this is the bit that makes is unique to you.

It will tell anyone viewing the badge:

  • Who earned the badge (you)
  • What you achieved
  • When you achieved it
  • Who verifies the badge (Skills Strategies International)
