Digital Promise has released “Developing a System of Micro-credentials: Supporting Deeper Learning in the Classroom,” a publication that explores the Deeper Learning Framework and identifies the specific skills students must master to achieve at high levels. Additionally, it showcases the set of 40 educator micro-credentials Digital Promise designed to ensure that teachers have the competencies necessary to support Deeper Learning in their classrooms.
Digital Promise‘s Educator Micro-credentials initiative is developing a system that provides teachers with the opportunity to gain recognition for skills they master throughout their careers. Through the Deeper Learning micro-credentials, educators can identify and demonstrate competencies to help ensure their students enter college and the workforce ready to tackle complex challenges.
Additionally, Digital Promise seeks currently practicing educators to participate in their pilot program to test new micro-credentials.
