It’s been heads down, tails up over at Eduro Learning as we put the finishing touches on our new Micro-Credential Pathways and launching it with some free PDF downloads for you!

So what are micro-credentials I hear you say? Our first PDF in the launch tells you all about them and why they are the future of Professional Development (you can still get the PDF free here too). But basically micro-credentials are a new professional development model where we take the best teaching practices we use with students and apply them to professional development opportunities for educators.

We have put together 3 Micro-credential Pathways so far (and we’re working on another 2!).  If you’re just starting out in a technology-rich classroom, or you’re going 1:1 or are close to a 1:1 environment then you may be interested in our The 1:1 Teacher micro-credential. If you’re like me and really passionate about connecting your classroom both locally (inside in the class) and globally, then take a closer look at The Connected Teacher micro-credential.  This micro-credential has all the things I wish I’d had at my fingertips when I was starting to create a window into our classroom and connecting my students with the outside world.  All of the courses in this micro-credential would have been so helpful! (ok, I may be a little biased about this particular micro-credential as I’m one of the mentors for the Premium Package and Lissa is the mentor for the Academy Package and she’s awesome sauce too!)   And if you’re a coach, or just starting out as a coach or even thinking seriously about taking on a coaching role then you absolutely must check out The Coach.  Available soon will be a Supporting Your Parents for Coaches/Admin/Teachers micro-credential – this will help anyone needing help and/or support to put together a programme in their school that helps support the parenting community in the technology-rich environment their children are living and learning in.

So there they are ….. a little introduction to the first of our Micro-credentials. We’re still launching and giving away freebies – so like our Facebook page so you can get a notification of when we go live (it’s usually around 9am Perth time on a Friday), or subscribe to our blog posts and get the freebie download links.  Be quick though – they aren’t going to be free for much longer! We do ask for your email each time, not to spam you but to see what people are interested in so that we keep making useful things for you!
