What Kind of Promise Does the Future Hold for Teachers?
In this interview with EdTech Digest, Karen Cato (President and CEO of Digital Promise) discusses micro-credentials, professional learning and teacher learning. Commenting on how micro-credentials can transform professional learning, she says: "Micro-credentials provide a way to personalize professional learning for educators by providing competency-based recognition for the skills they learn throughout their careers. Educators can set specific goals and direct their professional learning on their own schedules. Micro-credentials earned in pre-service can demonstrate what skills new teachers already have as they enter the teaching profession."
