Background:
In September 2011, the North Carolina State Board of Education formed a Task Force on Global Education to assess the state's effort to produce globally competitive graduates ready to live, work and contribute in an interconnected world. Based on its findings, the Task Force made a number of recommendations that would help to ensure that public school students are well prepared.

One opportunity coming out of the Global Education Task Force work was the creation of criteria and a process for teachers to earn a Global Educator Digital Badge. In September 2014, NCDPI staff presented to the Board a framework in which a candidate for the Global Educator Digital Badge would work with his or her principal to create a professional development plan focused on embedding global education in instruction. Candidates for the badge would be required to complete 100 hours or 10 CEUs of global educational professional development and meet a Capstone Project requirement within two years (including acceptance into Home Base as a statewide resource). Upon completion of the requirements, a digital badge would be issued to the teacher at the state level and the designation would be documented in the teacher's Home Base Educator's Professional Development Profile.

The State Board of Education approved the Global Educator Digital Badge for Teachers policy at the October 2, 2014, Board meeting. At the October 2015 Board meeting a revised policy including additional public school educator categories was approved.
