Aloha,

TCC 2012 and LearningTimes presents a special, pre-conference webinar on Badge-based learning. There is no charge for this event, and conference registration is not required.

Badge-Based Learning and 21st Century Skills
Jonathan Finkelstein, President and Founder of LearningTimes
April 10, 2012
4:00pm – 5:00pm EDT

Jonathan is also director of the BadgeStack project which is being integrated into TCC conference activities.

We are living in an age of opportunity for learning, specialization and innovation like none ever seen before. How do we connect interest-driven learning, as well as new skills and literacies, to a broader ecosystem of accreditation and recognition to enable each learner to capitalize on the learning experiences that they are already having, or to inspire and help them to seek out new ones, as well as to communicate their achievements and skills to necessary stakeholders? A digital badge ecosystem could play a critical role for diverse learners across the Web, and help translate that learning into a powerful tool for getting jobs, finding communities of practice, demonstrating skills or seeking out further learning.

This event is free and does not require registration for TCC 2012. Feel free to invite your friends and colleagues. Fifteen (15) minutes prior to the event, go to:
