All Learners Have a Story, Help Them Tell It


1EdTech members are revolutionizing how learners capture their achievements and competencies beyond the traditional transcript to help each student tell their story.

North Dakota

The state of North Dakota uploads its academic standards to 1EdTech's CASE® Networka single open repository service for K-12 state and national academic standards and competencies. Making it easier for the state’s partners to access information and work togther to meet learner needs.

Through CASE, organizations can see the knowledge and skills a learner needs to achieve to earn a digital badge, increasing the value of the accomplishment.

The state is also working to connect the standards to higher education institutions to help learners better understand what courses they do and do not need to take as they continue their education.

The CASE Network from 1EdTech enhances digital credentials by allowing linked data within the credential to interrogate the competency and skills framework defined for the credential. Course standards and objectives provide a vital link to the workforce and employers adopting skills-based hiring.

Bowdoin College

Bowdoin College wants to give graduates every advantage when they enter the workforce. That’s why the university is piloting a new digital badge program, using knowledge gained from experience and 1EdTech collaborations, to help students capture, understand, and share all the knowledge and skills they gain while in college.

The college's first badging program, the Digital Corps, helps IT department student workers showcase the technical skills acquired during their on-campus employment. Efforts are also underway to develop badging programs within other departments in the college.

Students can’t always articulate what skills come with their degree, including those gained in co-curricular activities. Badges are more transparent, are easily accessed, and are often complementary to the student’s degree.

Formalizing the skills our students gain while at Bowdoin will help them be more career-ready, and badges capture their abilities in a way that is easier to present to future employers or other higher education institutions.

We're seeing an increasing number of innovative institutions make the smart move to bridge classroom teaching to workforce relevance by tying programmatic and course assessment activities to creating skills and outcomes on a CLR. This immediately becomes a valuable and marketable tool for students.
