February 16, 2017 | By

Digital Promise and the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) at George Washington University have collaborated to develop 20 personal finance micro-credentials for educators, covering skills in credit card use, saving, and mobile financial management. Each micro-credential is aligned to personal finance national standards, all of which explore topics and situations relevant to students’ daily lives.

Digital Promise’s Jennifer Kabaker, Director of Educator Micro-credentials, and Odelia Younge, Partnership Manager, recently discussed the financial literacy micro-credential stack with Tim Ranzetta of Next Gen Personal Finance in the Tim Talks To podcast.
