Micro-credentialing leads to Districts becoming self-sufficient

I see Micro-credentialing as a wonderful way for school districts to have staff certified to provide staff development for specific learning strategies and content enhancement routines within their district. Another advantages is having experts within the district to coach others, answer questions, and provide suggestions. Districts become self-sufficient rather than trying to coordinate with outside KU/SIM staff development trainers.

Quote of the day "How can we keep SIM going in our district".

Micro-credentialing can provide the avenue for other teachers who are not classically trained with SIM to focus on one aspect of SIM that resonates with them.

My thoughts.....

This is my first experience with the SIM micro-credential badge program. Once I got the hang of it, I found it easy--only had to message the badge people once!! I think I will appreciate having one central location to store and share my PD experiences. I also hope to check-in once in a while on the PD experiences of others in the network.
