Microcredentials

The Connected Teacher

This academic-year-long online mentorship program includes 25 weeks of course content learning (divided into 4 key themes for a connected classroom) that is immediately applicable to your own school setting and will enable you to deepen the learning experience for your students. Highly experienced and approachable mentors provide ongoing support via weekly emails, regular video conference meetings, and forum feedback.

Completing this microcredential will:

  • Transform student learning through local and global connections;
  • Leverage the power of local and global connections as a teacher and a learner;
  • Build and maintain a connected classroom; and
  • Empower your students to engage responsibly, respectfully and safely in virtual spaces by exposure to
    • different perspectives;
    • student voice;
    • authentic audience; and the
    • opportunity to make meaningful change.

PRACTICAL & RELEVANT
Each course includes video lessons, a selection of highly curated resources, and an action task for participants to complete, along with an opportunity to reflect in our private community forums. The microcredential culminates in a personal project which is customized for each participant’s individual goals and needs.

COHORT MODEL – ONLY OFFERED ONCE A YEAR
In order to provide a highly customized deep learning experience, our micro credentials are offered only once a year and follow a cohort model. This allows each participant to determine the order of the courses they take, while still building a learning community of like-minded educators within our private discussion forums.

WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE
Because we are a global company, we know that our participants are in a variety of time zones, so you can complete the coursework whenever is convenient to you and connect with your mentor at times that work for both of you. In general, we recommend that you anticipate 5 hours of learning time per week.

RE-CERTIFICATION CREDITS & CERTIFICATE AWARD
The 1:1 Teacher Microcredential is designed for teachers in a 1:1 or similar technology-rich environment who want to cultivate deep learning experiences that maximize pedagogy and digital tools. Courses can be taken for re-certification credit to be applied towards teacher license renewal (in the US), or simply for professional growth. Participants receive a certificate of completion that can be used for future job applications to demonstrate their extensive technology-rich environment knowledge and experience.

2018 REGISTRATION OPENS October 1st!
2018 COHORT BEGINS November 12.

It’s an advantage to learn from educators who are experienced and very knowledgeable. Verena Zimmer
