Podcast: Why Don't Students Speak? by Christopher Waugh | May 4, 2019 | Podcast, The Journey | 4 comments 4 Comments Ed Waddington on May 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm Thanks for your very positive podcast. A pragmatic question: Which classes know about the badges at this stage? Reply Christopher Waugh on May 9, 2019 at 6:11 pm Hi Ed, There are three Year 10 classes + Year 10 Drama and a Year 8 group at this stage. Are you ready to join? C Reply Susan Hennessey on May 11, 2019 at 10:13 am Thrilled with the multiple entry points into this work you’ve provided for those of us experimenting with micro-credentials and digital badging. Here in Vermont, we have proficiency-based graduation requirements. A group of us, including students, are piloting the use of digital badges to expand flexible pathways and encourage outside-of-school learning opportunities to meet graduation requirements. Quick platform question: are you using BadgeOS plugins with WordPress to create this site and manage the workflow? So eager to follow your journey and learn from both the classroom implementation and the research component. Reply Christopher Waugh on May 11, 2019 at 11:44 am Hi Susan, Thanks so much for making contact. We’d be very pleased to engage with you and explore how things are working in your sphere. Yes, we are using BadgeOS and WordPress as our initial platform. It works well for our needs at present, and we feel it provides the best options in terms of future development if everything goes well. Is this the path you’ve chosen too? Any input (critical or otherwise) is most welcome – and do let us know if you’d like to talk at some point. Righto! Chris Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
