We’re pleased that DigitalMe is joining us to promote Open Badges as the future of online skills development and recognition.

DigitalMe will be raising awareness of Open Badges and encouraging young people and adults to start their Open Badge journey by gaining skills and their first badge at the BETT Show 2014 in London next week.
Tim Riches, CEO of Digital Me, explains: “It’s often difficult to get accreditation for the skills and achievements which occur outside of school. Open badges help solve this problem by allowing people to easily earn, manage and share their badges across the web. Having the evidence of the learning “baked into” each badge means that potential employers are able to see exactly how the skills have been developed.
“Open Badges are key to bridging the gap between young people and employers, and they are also an exciting way to develop and display skill development online. We’re delighted to be joining Stone Computing at this year’s BETT Show and hope that many delegates join us to earn a badge and see young people taking part too.”
Activities on offer at this year’s BETT show on the Stone Computing stand include the opportunity to create your own media, learn how to make circuits and create your own robot, design your own open badge, hack the front cover of heat magazine and code your own web page.
Daley Robinson, Group Marketing Director for Stone, said, "We have an exciting selection of partners joining us at BETT 2014 and some really interesting activities on offer. We’re pleased that DigitalMe is joining us to promote Open Badges as the future of online skills development and recognition.”
