Welcome to Vermont Learning Cooperative
Vermont Learning Cooperative is a hub for Vermont educators and expanded learning providers (ELPs) to collaborate. We share models of micro-credentialing, understand that student learning happens inside and outside of school, and work together to credential learning that happens anywhere within existing school structures.
- Create an informal network where ELPs and schools work together to create greater equity through increased and articulated proficiency-based and personalized learning opportunities.
- Share emerging and matured models of measuring learning with badges and micro-credentials happening inside and outside of classrooms in Vermont.
- Help schools and ELPs articulate learning through micro-credentials and digital badges to provide common architectures and language between and among systems.
- Guide the evolution of high school systems to formally credential out-of-school learning similarly as core academic classes that count toward graduation.
