Micro-credentialing with digital badges
What is Micro-credentialing? – Digital badges awarded for obtaining smaller, bite-sized skills meeting specific competencies. eMINTS micro-credentialing system allows teachers to develop and gain recognition for obtaining specific skills necessary for effective, modern, digital age instruction.

How does it work? Following face-to-face professional learning sessions, teachers use skills and materials developed to support their classroom practice. They determine how their application in the classroom meets specific eMINTS Digital Age Teaching and Learning competencies and submit an artifact. The relevance of the artifact to the competencies is determined by a reflection submitted by the participant. eMINTS provides digital badges that align with Mozilla Open Badging Standard (http://openbadges.org/).

Advantages of Micro-credentialing

  • Credentialing allows teachers to document and gain recognition for skills they develop during professional learning
  • Professional learning moves beyond “seat time” and accountability is provided for learning
  • Transfer of professional learning to classroom practice is ensured

Purchase one, any, or all of the following clusters or mix and match sessions to create a customized grouping that meets your unique needs.
