Open Badges

Learning happens everywhere. Yet it’s often difficult to be recognized for skills and achievements that are gained outside of school. Mozilla’s Open Badges project is working to solve that problem by making it easy for anyone anywhere to issue, earn, and display badges. The results: broad recognition of 21st century skills and experiences, unlocking of career and educational opportunities, and learners everywhere being able to level up in their lives and work.”  Mozilla Open Badges

The project will participate, through Learning Works in Europe CIC, in the Mozilla Open Badges programme to award recognition of e-heritage skills by school participants.
