Open Badge Driven Teacher ICT Skills Validation in Rwanda

The use of Open Badges in professional development of teachers is an extension to traditional teacher professional development initiatives. Existing teacher ICT Skills frameworks set a clear baseline for developing skills criteria and professional development goals for teachers globally. At the same time Badges support self-directed learning and micro certification through validation of existing skills.

The objective of this research was to test the badging approach and further examine the triggers that lead to learning / teachers motivation to apply for badges. The research was conducted during a  project targeting a group of teachers in Rwanda during the spring of 2020 . The research covered a badge-driven teacher professional development process that focused on skills validation. Quantitative data collection was undertaken through surveys prior, during and after the project. The results show a positive perception of a badge driven professional development programme by the participants.

Pete Stockley and Satu Järvinen will present the results of this research.
