Read time:

And now, for something completely different... The Advancing K12 One-Page Pitch Series aims to help team members lead from within. We’ll package up big topics into a comprehensive, concise pitch ready to deliver to stakeholders. 

This month we are exploring digital badging as an encouraging alternative (or companion) to traditional professional development. We’ve previously examined the challenges in PD and even created a digital badging program, the Future-Ready Teachers group. Now it’s your turn to capture the momentum around this energizing strategy.

If you’re jump-starting a new professional development initiative, here’s the compelling information to convince your team leaders, board members, or other stakeholders to give badging a try.
