Credly is an online badging system that recognizes individuals for their demonstrated competencies and skills. Credly makes meaningful achievements visible to others and supports lifelong learning through the use of micro-credentials.
Why? Credly is the badging platform being used to recognize educators for their personal professional learning on their own time. Earning badges as a form of professional development encourages teacher growth and motivates educators to learn new skills, use new digital tools, and discover new instructional strategies.
