Wrapping Up 2019 With New Micro-credentials

January 8, 2020 | By

As part of our robust, on-demand micro-credential ecosystem, we are proud to partner with organizations to provide pathways for personalized learning. These research-backed micro-credentials are digital certifications that verify an individual’s competence in a specific skill or set of skills, regardless of where and how they learned them. As we wrapped up 2019, we launched three public-facing and 15 private micro-credentials from our partners. The ecosystem is growing every day.

Micro-credentials launched in late 2019

228 Accelerator is an equity accelerator that facilitates the creation and transformation of schools and education organizations. Through this stack of five micro-credentials, learners show their skills in becoming a reflective practitioner, relationship-building, and equity-centered design in their own leadership practice as well as their organization’s. To learn more about this private stack of micro-credentials, please contact us.

The Friday Institute at North Carolina State University added a micro-credential on Responsible Decision-Making to its Learner Variability stack. Educators focus on identifying strengths or challenges related to responsible decision-making and use strategies to support student learning. The micro-credential also shares strategies and tools for educators, including the Learner Variability Navigator.


Digital Promise has developed 10 micro-credentials on computational thinking skills for high school students. Through three stacks—Computational Modeling, Data, and Programming & Algorithms—students demonstrate their skills in algorithmic thinking, computational tools and models, debugging, programming, data analysis and organization, and creating visualizations. The purpose of these micro-credentials is for students to demonstrate competencies that will be indicators of success in the workforce and beyond high school.
