BloomBoard and Digital Promise have partnered with some states to offer professional development credits for awarded micro-credentials. These credits or points can often be used toward relicensure/recertification and continuing education requirements. In these cases, an educator who is earns a micro-credential is eligible to receive credits in those states.
Which states do you partner with to offer formal credit for micro-credentials?
The following states currently provide credit for micro-credentials on the BloomBoard site, though requirements may vary by district:
- New York
- North Carolina
If you do not work in one of these states, your administrators can use this form to contact us and learn more about our micro-credential offerings and about providing continuing education credits for micro-credentials in your district.
What do I need to do in order to get credits?
Requirements and processes vary by district or state, so please check with your district or state’s professional development office. If your state or district does recognize micro-credentials on the BloomBoard site for credit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org once you’ve earned a micro-credential to ensure you receive the necessary documentation. You will then need to submit that documentation to your district and/or state depending on your local requirements.
If I apply for a micro-credential but it isn’t granted, can I still receive credits?
No. Formal credits are only offered for micro-credentials that have been awarded.
If your micro-credential submission is not awarded, we encourage you to review the feedback from your assessment form, incorporate it into your practice, and apply for the micro-credential again.
