Digital Promise is building an innovative system of micro-credentials that provides educators with a way to gain validated recognition for the skills and competencies they learn throughout their careers. The system allows educators to submit evidence, have it reviewed by experts and peers, and earn digital certification of specific competencies.
Educators engage in both formal and informal professional learning activities but are rarely recognized for their informal learning.
Micro-credentials are a natural extension of educators’ professional learning journeys. Earning a micro-credential takes just four steps.

A new study commissioned by Digital Promise and conducted by research firm Grunwald Associates, “Making Learning Count,” explores the attitudes of a nationally representative sample of K-12 teachers toward professional development and competency-based micro-credentials. The results provide critical insights into teachers’ thoughts about expanding their skills through formal and informal learning.
