Good read: "Open Source Friday" wants to remind employees to contribute: https://opensource.com/article/17/6/open-source-friday-give-back
A good initiative as I think. And it could be adopted for the educational context as well: Teachers could remind students every week to contribute to the net as they build their knowledge on the open web every day. They could file an issue on GitHub or add to Wikipedia or write a blogpost. Many opportunities exist.
I'm not an expert in open badges, but dealing with Open Educational Resources (#OER), Open Educational Practice (#OEP) and the question how to make #openness the default in teaching and learning - focus on Germany.
There are lots of online articles about it, but David Wiley's blog might be the most informative for diving into that topic https://opencontent.org/blog/
We are doing a live hangout with an #OER camp in Hamburg right now. Watch live: http://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2017/05/22/we-are-vconnecting-from-oercamp17-on-jun-23-24/
Right now I'm joining the workshop '„Ich lese diese Bullet points jetzt einfach mal laut vor!“ oder: Powerpoint – Die unbesungene Erfolgsgeschichte eines OER-Tools und unsere Konsequenzen heute' http://www.oercamp.de/17/nord/workshops/#nordA2c at #OERcamp17.
Collaboratively we are working on a slide set about #OER slides on Google Slides.
Today and tomorrow the #OER community will meet in the north of Germany to join/give sessions and workshops on various topics.
The event will be in German, please find more information on the website http://www.oercamp.de/17/nord/workshops/
