Micro-credential Program

Social Emotional Literacy

This integrated approach developed by The Learning Alliance, builds students’ social emotional competencies while also attending to their foundational literacy needs. Using research-based, best practice strategies, educators learn effective ways to reach ALL students.
The Learning Alliance’s Social Emotional Literacy micro-credentials give educators high-leverage strategies that tie to literacy goals and meet social emotional needs, so that students are available to learn. These strategies enhance standards-based instruction, meeting the foundational and the social emotional needs of K-5 learners. This 2-in-1 approach helps educators to deliver engaging, yet rigorous instruction that meet the standards of the 21st century classroom.

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.
