Digital Promise (the National Center for Research in Advanced Information and Digital Technology) is a nonprofit that supports schools and districts in developing classrooms that address existing inequities in our education system. With this grant, Digital Promise will work with districts in its League of Innovative Schools to close the digital learning gap. To pursue this goal, it will implement OER, which contributes to student ownership of learning and teacher ownership of curricula, and Challenge Based Learning, in which students solve classroom- and community-based problems and take action on meaningful local and global challenges.

Grants to this Grantee
for the design, build, and distribution of a system for teacher badging (credentialing)
Digital Promise, an independent, bipartisan, nonprofit organization authorized by Congress in the 2008 Higher Education Act, was launched in September 2011 to use technology and research to spur innovation in education for learners at all levels. It proposes to design, build, and distribute a system for teacher credentialing by creating a scalable, peer-review, open platform for deeper learning credentialing. This innovation will be a test case for our efforts to find scalable models that support teacher professional development in deeper learning.
