OpenLiteracy's Teaching Elementary Literacy microcredential program is an exciting opportunity to build capacity for teaching beginning reading in your school, district, or state.
What is a micro-credential?
Micro-credentials are a digital certification indicating that a person has demonstrated competency in a specific skill. Rather than learning by watching, reading, or listening alone, micro-credentials promote learning by doing. In order to earn a micro-credential, educators must apply and document their learning, submit evidence to be evaluated, and receive feedback on their instructional practice. Educators earn microcredentials after successfully demonstrating competency in the targeted skill.
Why choose OpenLiteracy's Micro-credentials?
OpenLiteracy has partnered with BloomBoard, a state of the art micro-credential learning platform. Together OpenLiteracy and BloomBoard are changing the way educators grow and learn by facilitating a shift toward ‘learning by doing’ using micro-credentials.
