A grassroots movement has led to Student Digital Leadership initiatives operating in a number of UK schools, both at primary (elementary) and secondary (high school) level. Until recently, there has been no mechanism to provide transferable recognition for the skills and achievements that students acquire in these roles. Mozilla's Open Badges technology offers an opportunity for addressing this, whereby students are able to collect badges for the roles they take on and display them on selected websites - for example, social networking profiles, job sites, online CVs and more ..

The session will describe how the SDL initiative is operating in UK schools, including the roles that students typically take on, and the design and development of the badging framework that helps define each badge/role.
