Abstract or Summary

The use of information and communication technologies (ICT’s) in the provision of health education has seen a fundamental shift in how, when and where learning occurs. Digital badges are a response to this emerging educational landscape. They provide a framework that facilitates learning in new contexts and provides opportunities for learners to celebrate their achievements. The challenge for health educationalists is to rigorously review, debate and advocate badge ecosystems to ensure they meet the requirements of multiple health stakeholders. This presentation reviewed how digital badges could be used in New Zealand District Health Boards
