Interview > Exploring the Uses of Digital Badges > Daniel Hickey

Interview is with Daniel Hickey, the Director of Learning Sciences at the School of Education at Indiana University at Bloomington. Hickey was recently awarded a $400,000 grant by the MacArthur Foundation’s Digital Media and Learning Initiative to study how digital badges, a non-traditional mechanism to record and display achievements and accomplishments, could be used to recognize, assess, motivate and evaluate learning. In this interview, Hickey discusses the value he thinks badges will bring to the higher education space and warns educators about challenges badges could face.
