The *Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition*<http://www.dmlcompetition.net/>
<http://www.dmlcompetition.net/>has launched a broad, open, critical, and
constructive conversation about digital badges, visual representations of
21st century skills and achievements. We invite you to learn more about open
badges and this Competition during a series of interactive webinars hosted
by the Mozilla Foundation <http://www.mozilla.org/> and the HASTAC/MacArthur
Foundation Digital Media & Learning Competition.

During our first Badges 101 webinar, we will address questions about the
basics of badges: What are badges? What are open badges? How can badges work
for learners? We will also address additional questions about badges as
submitted by webinar participants. Questions can be submitted in advance by
emailing dml at hri.uci.edu <dml at hri.uci.edu?subject=Webinar%20question> and
including "webinar question" in the subject line.
