Snippet: Issuing open badges to recognize Wikipedia skills of educators in Sweden.
As 2014 neared its end, Wikimedia Sweden started issuing Open Badges as a digital certificate to recognize educator achievements with successfully integrating Wikipedia in their curriculum. So far, six educators have been awarded the badge "Wikipediapedagog 2014". Taking steps from the design to actual issuing raised some technical issues that we need to consider before future implementation since we also plan to issue this type of credentials for students.
