mLibrarian Badges - OE4BW presentation


Published on

mLibrarian badges are the third part of a three pronged initiative developed by Derek Moore and the Goethe-Institut for public librarians. The intention of the whole project is to improve public librarians capacity to access and read "open" reading materials, available in digital formats. The set of mlibrarian badges (osing the Open Badge format) were focused around implementation of a mliteracy campaign in a community library. These badges offer micro application opportunities for librarians and act as a digital form of acknowledgement to those who can put into practice what they learned.

Thanks to Lance Eton (USA) and Sandhya Gunness (Mauritius) (selected by OE4BW) for mentoring me.
