Over the past few months, Digital Promise has traveled the country capturing the stories of educators who have earned Deeper Learning micro-credentials to transform teaching and learning. These 40 Deeper Learning micro-credentials were developed by Digital Promise to recognize educators who have shifted their classroom practice to encourage student success in our increasingly complex world.
Throughout our travels, we met and heard from passionate educators and students who are engaged in Deeper Learning. We took their dynamic stories and created three video case studies, highlighting classrooms in Kettle Moraine School District in Wales, Wisconsin; Butler Tech High School in Butler, Ohio; and Rancho Minerva Middle School in Vista, California. These video case studies showcase the various ways our Deeper Learning micro-credentials have impacted student intellectual empowerment and educator efficacy.
Watch each case study below and see the ways schools across the nation are harnessing the power of Deeper Learning.
Deeper Learning through Micro-credentials at Kettle Moraine School District
Kettle Moraine School District, located in Wales, Wisconsin, is committed to cultivating academic excellence, citizenship, and personal development in all their students. Educators at Kettle Moraine School District support the district’s commitment to personalized learning by earning “Deeper Learning” micro-credentials, which support them in empowering their students to think critically and work collaboratively in order to solve real-world problems.
Deeper Learning through Micro-credentials at Rancho Minerva Middle School
Rancho Minerva Middle School is located in Vista, California, a city in northwestern San Diego. Educators at Rancho Minerva Middle earn “Deeper Learning” micro-credentials to provide their students in grades 6-8 educational experiences that encourage critical thinking, collaboration, and self-directed learning.
Deeper Learning through Micro-credentials at Butler Tech High School
Butler Tech High School, located in Hamilton, Ohio, is one of Ohio’s largest career-technical schools. Students at Butler Tech choose from several different programs that help them experience real-world careers. The Teacher Academy at Butler Tech is one of these programs.
Butler Tech “Aspiring Educators” enrolled in the Teacher Academy have the opportunity to learn and apply teaching methods through workshops, off-site internships, and by conducting lessons with peers to prepare for their future classrooms.
Using the “Deeper Learning” framework and their related micro-credentials, Crissy Lauterbach, Director of the Teacher Academy, leads her Aspiring Educators in thinking critically about the skills and practices needed to be an effective teacher in today’s evolving society.
