Differentiated Professional Development with BloomBoard

BloomBoard was founded in 2010 as a teacher coaching platform that would serve as a way to provide teachers with differentiated instruction. BloomBoards are curated by content area experts and cover a variety of topics from using Twitter for Professional Development to ways to teach math through music and everything in between. Each board has a manageable number of quality resources including blog posts, video, podcast, and websites. Each resource includes an explanation from the curator about why they included it on the board.

If you want to go beyond casually exploring the boards, you can earn micro-credentials for completing a series of activities. In some instances, you can even earn graduate credit.

Applications for Education
Teachers are constantly seeking out new ways to learn. BloomBoard provides a way for teachers to find resources that fit their interest and skill level. Bloomboard was designed to be used by teachers and what teachers learn from these resources will have a direct impact on the classroom.
