Digital Promise and Verizon have teamed up to offer freetraining pathways for individual teachers that will lead them to educator microcredentials. Three pathways are currently available, with more to be offered later in the year: Transitioning to remote learning, to learn how to shift pedagogy to a remote format, which is aligned with five microcredentials; Evergreen tools for blended and remote learning, to explore tools for creating online classroom spaces and meaningful blended and remote learning experiences, which can lead to a single microcredential; and Introduction to instructional technology coaching, to help build coaching skills that lead to improved teaching and learning with instructional technology, which does not have its own credential but can serve as a supplemental resource to existing coaching models. Teachers can go through the programs via standalone instruction with webinars and learning modules or with sequenced learning courses available in real time or on demand. When the training has concluded, Digital Promise’s microcredentials program provides competency-based certification through assessment by experts; and teachers receive a certificate of attendance. The program is part of Verizon’s Innovative Learningproject, which has delivered teacher training to more than 14,000 teachers in over 200 schools, in a structure that has involved entire schools. Now the two organizations are making the training available to individual educators.
