Awarding badges to motivate teachers to improve skills
Hutto Independent School District / Hutto, TX
Suburban / PK-12
Purpose and impact:
How it works:
It’s OK to start the program with simple tools such as Google Sites and Forms – but as it grows, investigate more full-featured platforms that will make it easier to post activities and tally the leaderboard.
Pins and badges aren’t just for teachers. Hutto asks principals and administrators to take part as a way to show buy-in for the program.
Encourage teachers who already practice their technology skills to participate in the program. Instructional technology specialists who see teachers modeling smart behavior can remind them about available pins and badges.
