Rob Arntsen leads on "Next Big Ideas" with Open Badges at e-Vocational Conference

18 May, 2017

Rob Arntsen, Chairman and Founder of MyKnowledgeMap, presented on 'The Value of Badges Combined with Rich Evidence' at today's Federation of Awarding Bodies-supported conference.

The talk led the "next big ideas" segment of the conference, and focussed on the value of badges as part of a wider ecosystem of evidence—ideas which have been trailblazed by our Myshowcase.me tool.

The e-Vocational Assessment conference focussed on recent developments in the use of technology in vocational qualifications. With the ever changing face of vocational education and training, the next five years or more will prove a challenge, yet again, to Awarding Organisation and providers alike. Both the rise of apprenticeships and the advent of T-Levels will alter the vocational landscape in a way not yet predictable.

The conference looked at both the current technology landscape in vocational e-assessment and the trends and new opportunities that could support the changes in vocational qualifications and assessment.
