Beginning in the fall of 2016, DigiBadges were added to the HISD Technology Initiative. HISD teachers have the opportunity to be recognized as “Digital Learning Innovators”. DigiBadges were 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 list of “BADGES” that are currently available and to suggest additional badge options. Click on the name of the program to access the requirements for earning a particular badge and the documentation that is required as proof of implementation.
As an incentive for teachers to participate in the DigiBadge initiative, funds have been provided for recognition of teachers that participate. Drawings will occur at the same time that Competency drawings are held.
(2) 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 available DigiBadge Options.
(3) One’s name is entered into the drawing for each additional set of THREE BADGES earned.
(One may win the DIGIBADGE AWARD only once.)
