Open Badge Network will be at Mozfest London 28th – 30th October on the Open Badges floor. Come and visit us to find out how you can support the adoption of Open Badges across Europe.
Since Mozfest 2014, over 250 amazing badge projects have been shared via the Badge the World map. Over 100 of these are in Europe. The Open Badge Network (OBN) project aims to provide information, tools and support to help develop the ecosystem further.
OBN will be based on the Open Badges Floor during Mozfest 16 to share information and tools we have been developing and to connect with individuals and organisations interested in joining the network.
Things to look out for:
- 28th October from 6pm: Add your project to the European Badge Map at the Science Fair.
- 29th October all day: Come and visit us on the Open Badges Floor (floor 7) to find out more about OBN and how you can join
- 29th October at 1pm: Learn about Open Badges & Quality in an interactive session run by Digitalme
- 30th October at 1pm: Learn about how to build and sustain Open Badge Networks
The Open Badges floor will also include a host of exciting sessions, presentations and demos of Open Badges from around the world, coordinated by Digitalme. Over the past four years, Digitalme has worked closely with Mozilla to advocate for the Open Badge standard, to implement badge projects in the UK and Europe, and, more recently, support the leadership of Open Badges, on behalf of Mozilla.
As part of this next phase, Digitalme is supporting the community at Mozfest 2016 to showcase how they have been using badges, to make practical contributions to the Open Badges infrastructure and work together to develop a vision for the future via the Open Badges floor.
- Showcase: Share innovative examples of badge projects happening around the world
- Infrastructure: Contribute to the next version of the open badges technical infrastructure, through Hack the BackPack sessions and discussion around the standard/extensions
- Advocacy: Connect with partners and build networks to further support the expansion of the badge ecosystem world-wide

We look forward to seeing you there!
