Micro-credentialing is exciting! I'm making all sorts of connections!

Micro-credentialing will become an active, real time resume of my professional development

I am especially interested in taking this concept back to my high school in St. Paul.  I am the tech integration coordinator for the roll out of 1:1 devices at Harding High School.  I am excited to work with some teachers in applying micro credentials to their coursework.  I think that this would be a very engaging way to motivate and involve students in their learning.

Micro-credentialing is going to provide multiple routes for educators to engage with SIM.

I have completed one badge, and this is my second.

I'm not sure yet how this links to deepening teachers' professional development, but I am open to continuing to learn.

Micro-Credentialing in SIM is great. Many teachers who are implementing various routines and strategies are masters at using them.

Love the idea and know it will be fun and challenging.

I love the concept, and at the same time, I know there will be a bit of a steep learning curve. I suppose I need to get on my hiking books....they are old friends. 
Technology is both amazing and challenging. I am looking forward to learning from this process that will keep me connected to others as well as organize my own artifacts in a fun and engaging way.

It will be interesting to see if this concept takes off in education. We are so tied to our professional development certificate of hours.

The process appears to provide clarity for SIM certification status, but not sure about the efficiency of using the information.

I think that this movement is important given the digital age.
