DigiBadge Program

Total amount of award is $2,000 (Two names will be drawn each cycle)


Beginning in the fall of 2016, each campus will implement a Badge incentive program at the campus level. Teachers will receive “campus” badge recognition for attending training and/or using technology in one’s classroom.  The district’s “Innovative Educator Badge Recognition Program” is the district level addition to the campus badge incentive programs.  

>To successfully complete DigiBadge Program and become eligible for one’s name to be included in the drawing for a cash award, a teacher must earn a minimum of THREE different BADGES from the Digital Learning Innovators options below.   One’s name is entered into the drawing for each additional set of THREE BADGES earned.   (One may win the DIGIBADGE AWARD only once during a schoolyear.)

>All activities and documentation for completion of a DIGIBADGE must occur AFTER the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. 

>To be eligible to participate in the district’s “Innovation Educator Badge Recognition” program and be eligible to receive a cash incentive, a teacher must have successfully completed one’s competency requirements for the current school year.  

DigiBadge 

Beginning in the fall of 2016, DigiBadge wil be added to the HISD Technology Initiative.  HISD teachers will have the opportunity to be recognized as  “Digital Learning Innovators”.  DigiBadge was created to recognize those teachers that incorporate different types of technology integration in their classrooms to promote 21st century skills such as digital citizenship, communication,cooperation, critical thinking, collaboration, research, and global awareness.

Teachers  are encouraged to examine the chart below to see the “BADGES” that are currently available, those that are in the development stage, and to suggest additional badge options.  Click on the name of the program or concept  to access the requirements for earning a particular badge and the documentation that is required as proof of implementation.
