LearningTimes announced today that the Health, Emotion and Behavior Laboratory at Yale University is using the BadgeStack learning and community platform to expand The RULER Approach curricula to include an online teacher certification process offering support and coaching for its trainees.
The RULER Approach is a research-based curricula designed to facilitate emotional literacy in school communities. Robust teacher professional development is an essential part of the success of this program. Until now the Ruler Group delivered training on site at schools and provided direct coaching. The model proved to be financially challenging for school districts to support and did not ensure sustainability.
BadgeStack is a learning and community platform that fosters and recognizes individual learning and community involvement through digital credentials and badges.
