Digital badges are still very new. This means there is much to discover as they evolve into different structures and are used in new ways, for new purposes. Trends and developments in hardware and software as well as new strategies for teaching and assessment will influence the ways we use badges in the future. Using two different themes for conceptualizing novelty – recurrence and recombination – this chapter discusses the challenges with properly describing novelty and its attributes. It also discusses the role of invention in the creative process. The chapter concludes by considering strategies for assessing novel badges.
