Edmodo is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Digital Promise to create micro-credentials for educators. Digital Promise is known for their leading 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. This partnership will enhance the range of options for professional development both within your school or district and beyond. In addition to school and district PD badges, a new level of credentialing that teachers can do on their own will soon appear in the Edmodo teacher profile. You can take these credentials with you wherever you go, knowing your recognition will always be validated.
The badges you earn will be awarded by Digital Promise and will live permanently on your Edmodo profile. Feel free to engage in both formal and informal learning, secure in the knowledge that all the PD you complete becomes part of your profile of record within your school or district. We’re redefining the teacher profile by recognizing accomplishments made both in and outside the classroom. In the coming weeks we will be rolling out these new micro-credentials, so stay tuned for more!
