“Deeper Learning” is an umbrella term for the skills, understandings, and mindsets students must possess to succeed in today’s jobs and civic life. Digital Promise embarked upon a mission to determine how teachers can demonstrate and be recognized for their ability to engage students in Deeper Learning. The result of this effort is a set of 40 micro-credentials, which can be mapped to specific Deeper Learning competencies. They are organized into categories to align with the Deeper Learning strategies that are essential for students to achieve at high levels.
Micro-credentials recognize educators for the skills and competencies they learn throughout their careers. To earn a micro-credential, educators submit evidence of their competence (e.g. context for a lesson, examples of student work, student and teacher reflections). That evidence is then assessed by experts or peers based on a set of evaluation criteria.
