• Looks very interesting, I love how you are getting Micro-Credentials involved. How does the program work, are their courses that you have already created for your staff, or do you create them based on the requests.

    • ProLearn has 11 courses and 5 more are currently being developed. The courses include Google Classroom, Google Slides, Google Docs/Drive, Google Sites, Google Calendar, Prezi Next, Inquiry Design Model, Google Forms, Question Formulation Technique, YouTube, and Thinking Through Quality Questioning. Educators select a course and join a Google Classroom. All courses are designed using topics. Participants state course goals. Next various tasks are completed such as reviewing blog posts, videos, and professional articles. A lesson plan is developed incorporating the new instructional tool/tools. Then educators video the lesson or portions of the lesson and upload to the course. A course reflection is completed using Google Forms and Flipgrid. Google Plus Communities have been developed for each course and posts/responses are made on the community page. The hope is the Google Plus Communities will support ongoing learning and assist new members. ProLearn is developing a library of lesson plans, videos of lessons, teacher/student work products, and reflections. Digital badges are showcased on social media, ProLearn Leaderboard, and celebrated in schools!
