Blended and personalized learning is good for both students and teachers. This innovative approach to professional development allows teachers and administrators to work at their own pace as they build competencies and earn compensation.

We can all agree that a one size fits all model for learning isn't effective for children. This is also true for adult learners. In this presentation district leaders will take away templates and structures for personalizing teacher professional development using online digital badges and competency based demonstrations of learning. The Cajon Valley Union School District developed an online digital academy that provides teachers with the content and skills necessary to complete a Demonstration of Learning (DOL), which leads to the earning of a digital badge and corresponding stipend. Most professional development models pay teachers for their time to sit through a "training" or "workshop". This innovative approach to professional development makes time the variable and learning constant. Advanced teachers can skip through modules and go straight to the Demonstrations of Learning. Novice teachers on a given competency may go slow, work with a team, or have in person support if necessary as they complete their badges.
