Equity, Competency, and the Whole Child Experience in K-12 Education

Applying the Network Approach to the Resume Problem
There's an old adage about job seeking that, "It's not what you know; it's who you know." It's time to update that adage—and the standard resume—to more accurately reflect the future of work. We believe it's a combination of what you know, how you communicate it, and who you can connect with. Digital credentials in isolation have laid the foundation of what's next for the resume. Join us to find out what Credly and it's robust network of credential issuers have planned for connecting industry with learning, and opportunities with qualified individuals. Download presentation.

Reconceptualizing Implementations of Digital Badging
Many people consider digital badging and micro-credentialing to be nascent practices in higher education. Though numerous institutions have engaged in efforts to leverage the technology and standards, several challenges—such as adoption practices, program-oriented thinking, and unfocused value expectations—persist and are hindering opportunities for broader adoption of Open Badges. Campus Labs will share its vision for helping institutions reconceptualize the implementation of digital badging and micro-credentialing in order to mitigate these challenges. Download presentation.
