Project PARA TODOS will provide 500 K-8 Educators with a 12-month program of study leading to 8 microcredentials and the NABE EL/DL Educator Digital Badge.
The Project will also provide 1,000 K-8 Educators (who were not selected for the 12-month program) with a full day Early Learner WWC Intensive Institute at the annual NABE Conference.
Project PARA NINOS will also provide 400 parents/caregivers of EL/DLs with Family Literacy Institute training.
A combination of formative and summative evaluation data will be used to guide the development of evidence – based training materials to maximize program effectiveness and support replication and scaling efforts across the country.
A digital badge demonstrates that you have mastered a variety of skills required to be a successful EL/DL teacher or administrator. These skills are rooted in classroom practice.
Through NABE, these digital badges provide status within the professional and educational community and encourage motivation for learning.
