Digital badges are virtual credentials and offer a new way to demonstrate your competencies to employers and others among your professional and personal network. Serving as symbols of a specific skill, ability, expertise, competency or accomplishment, digital badges are issued upon the successful completion of an Adventure. Each badge is associated with an image and information about the badge, its recipient, the issuer, and any supporting evidence.
Prescience Badges are designed to acknowledge soft skills you have acquired during your adventures and the completion of the learning process. Once you have successfully completed your adventure, you will automatically receive a notification that you can collect your Adventure Badge.
Once earned, you can share your digital badges on your resume, e-portfolio and social networks, even in your email signature. Badges are clickable, linking through to where they are officially stored in Mozilla Backpack. This allows others to see the details of your competencies and verify their authenticity as credentials earned through Prescience activities. Each Digital Badge is linked to its recipient, issuer, and adventure completed and its content.
