Badges for Professional Learning

Integrating technology into classroom instruction means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs in a separate computer class. Effective tech integration happens across the curriculum in ways that research shows deepen and enhance the learning process of your students. The badges listed below reflect some of the best practices being used in our district to integrate the 4 C's: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration into the curriculum.

Recognition for Professional Growth

Badges are a fun way to acknowledge professional learning that is systematic, cohesive, and flexible. These tech integration badges were created to help teachers plan their professional growth, self-pace and differentiate their learning, and earn/display recognition for their efforts. And a little friendly competition brings in an element of fun! Fourteen badges were originally created for Project LEAN In Cohort 2 to make the Kick-off sessions consistent, create a common language, and clarify expectations. The following badges are now available to ALL certificated staff (teachers, mentors, and administrators).
