May 17, 2017   |   By Lucia Giacomantonio

Summer is just around the corner, and it's a great time for educators to develop new skills through micro-credentials. While many micro-credentials require educators to provide evidence of their learning through work with students, there are several other micro-credentials that can be earned without students in the classroom. We've put together a list of these micro-credentials that are perfect for earning throughout the summer. Some are even eligible for graduate-level credit! Choose the one that's right for you and get started by visiting bloomboard.com/digitalpromise.
