DIGITAL BADGES ARE PARTICULARLY RELEVANT TO OUR CHANGING WORLD BECAUSE THEY OPEN UP OUR CURRENT SYSTEM OF RATING AND RANKING TO MORE NUANCED LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING, AND ALLOW A MORE EVIDENCE-BASED OR PERSONALIZED ANALYSIS OF LEARNING THAN TRADITIONAL CREDENTIALS PROVIDE (GRANT, 2014, P.11). SherylGrant, 2015 WARRANTING EVIDENCE 5. THE VARIOUS FIELDS OF DATA IN THE BADGES CAN MAKE THE ARTIFACTS IN THE PORTFOLIOS MUCHMORE MEANINGFUL. BADGES CONTAIN SPECIFIC CLAIMS, EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THOSE CLAIMS, AND LINKS TO MORE EVIDENCE (I.E.,., ARTIFACTS IN PORTFOLIOS). BUT THEY ALSO CONTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT WHEN AND WHERE THOSE ARTIFACTS WERE CREATED. THIS ADDRESSES A MASSIVE VALIDITY CHALLENGE FOR PORTFOLIOS AS EVIDENCE OF COMPETENCES: WITHOUTINFORMATIONTHE CONTEXT OF CREATION, YOUCAN'T EVALUATE THE PORTFOLIO AS EVIDENCE OF MUCH OF ANYTHING.

WARRANTING EVIDENCE DESIGNING BADGE CLAIMS A badge claim is an application of evidence to demonstrate competency, achievement, skill or experience to a badge issuer. Making a claim for evidence of award can be done in a number of ways, for instance a claim may be made in formal or informal learning spaces against a designed set of criteria on a rubric or self issued with claims of evidence that are endorsed by key stakeholders.

A curator is a planner, designer, creator and maker of and in spaces that represent a genre, theme, narrative, story, life and invite discourse as they direct an audience for a purpose (Coleman, 2015). The act of self-curation in a portfolio entails selecting artefacts that reflect this common purpose, dependent on the context, theme or aim and presenting it for an audience such as an assessor, employer or for the self. 15. WARRANTING EVIDENCE WHEN APPLIED TO DIGITAL BADGES AND BADGE CLAIMS, PORTFOLIOS ENABLE A LEARNER TO: Display digital and open badges as artefacts curated in a collection. Represent pathways,incentives and recognition of waypoints in the learning journey and narrative. Make explicit connections between learning experiences over time. Have evidence validated,endorsed and verified. Be recognised and verified for evidence,both direct and indirect. Receive credit for gaining and developing self efficacy, self-evaluation and metacognition. Evidence competencies, skills, achievements and knowledge for a credential. 16.
