Micro-credentials are...

Competency-based

Micro-credentials allow educators to focus on a discrete skill related to their practice — for instance, checking for student understanding — and collect the evidence — such as classroom videos or student work to demonstrate ability in that specific skill.

On Demand

Through an agile online platform that clearly identifies each micro-credential’s competency and required evidence, educators can start and continue the process of earning micro-credentials on their own time.

Personalized

Because educators select the micro-credentials they wish to earn, they can create their own professional learning journey aligned to their specific student needs and instructional goals.

Shareable

Once educators earn micro-credentials, they can display the digital badges on Edmodo, LinkedIn, or a blog to signal their demonstrated competence wherever their professional journey might take them.
