Micro-credential 1: Choosing & Using Tech Tools for Higher Level Learning

Course Details:

This Micro-credential is geared towards both the teacher who is a beginner technology user as well as the tech-savvy teacher. In this Micro-credential, you will learn about multiple technology tools, the 4Cs, SAMR, higher level learning, and you will receive multiple opportunities to integrate tech tools in your classroom and reflect on how the integration went. This Micro-credential will support learner-to-learner interactions to build a supportive group for reflecting and gaining advise in a safe space. In this Micro-credential, you will also get the support and opportunity to grow your Professional Learning Network (PLN) beyond your current network, connecting with educators from other Independent Schools in and outside of the AIMS community.


Discover different technology tools and their use in the classroom to support higher level learning. There are many technology tools available for the Four Cs (Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity), but choosing and using the most effective tool to redefine your classroom and engage students in higher level learning can be challenging. Utilizing the well-known SAMR model, this micro-credential provides you with the skills to critique, analyze, connect, and apply technology tools to your classroom focusing on higher level learning.
