Micro-credential Program

Giftedness Knows No Boundaries

An outcome-based professional learning opportunity from the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) that helps educators in identifying gifted students from diverse backgrounds and to increase equity of access to quality programming.

The Giftedness Knows No Boundaries campaign promotes equity and excellence in our nation’s homes, schools, and communities and provides key information about the nature and needs of gifted children. These children need informed counselors, teachers, and parents who understand the challenges they face and provide resources to ensure they can achieve their personal best.

Why Micro-credentials Matters

Each micro-credential earned signifies that an educator has met the profession’s highest standards for demonstrated practice of a specific competency. Together, with our state, district, and training development partners, we are advancing the next generation of professional learning while bringing cohesion, transparency, and professionalism to the profession.

What’s in a Micro-credential

A micro-credential is a form of micro-certification earned by demonstrating competency in one specific skill at a time, via a portfolio of evidence, created through classroom practice.

Micro-credentials on BloomBoard follow the ADDIE instructional design framework. Each micro-credential is based on a robust, standardized blueprint, grounded in instructional design best practices.
