Love the micro-credentialing. Already thinking about how my students can earn badges for showing mastery.

This process has so many possibilities to organize our local SIM network. We will use the badge process as part of our job embedded PD.

Tthis is a new and exciting way to show what you know.

It's going to take awhile to get everything completed.

I believe that the provision of this form of recognition and credential is going to be well-received by teachers and administrators alike.

Micro-credentialing can be a great asset to the network and individual participants.

As an individual, this is a way to keep real-time evidence of the activities and outcomes of SIM professional development and applications.  It could be used as a source for qualifying to become a professional developer, to document continuing education, and to share ideas among members of the network.

"EYE POPPING & WOW!!" This is definitely an amazing way of evolving the resume of the 21st century.

  • What are your thoughts about the new SIM micro-credential badge program? My thoughts about the new SIM micro-credential badge program..............  It is amazing.  This will be a great way of professionals to post new accolades, PD, expertise,etc. the list is infinite. 
  • How will you use them in your practice?  I will use this system not only for myself but would also love to share this implementation with my teachers.  This will be a great way to show off the SIMtastic teachers at my campus.

Seems to be an effective efficient way to maintain a SIM resume

1. Micro-credentialing (badges) seems to be an effective efficient way to maintain a SIM resume for those of us interested in the role of professional developer. I am wondering about teachers who attend my session who only want to implement the LS or CER that they are learning.

2. As I learn more about it, it will become clearer to me about how to use it.

Creating groups and building evidence that can be used for feedback

I am very interested in looking toward creating my own groups and building evidence that can be used for feedback toward teacher goal setting and eventual “mastery” to earn the badge.  I also like the ability to stack badges to build levels of capacity and better connections between SIM and CCSS, RTI, etc.
