5C Badge Program

Earn a Chromebook to Use in Your Classroom!

The 5C Badge program for 2018 is now open. Developed by the Technology Department a few years ago, the 5C Badge Program was created to reward individuals integrating technology into the curriculum. Open to professional staff with a classroom, participants go through a self-paced curriculum earning a badge for the 5Cs (critical thinking, creativity, digital citizenship, collaboration, and communication) by creating and implementing lessons using technology. If a teacher earns all 5 badges, they get earn a Chromebook to use while employed with FISD. 5C Badge FAQ. Email me when you are ready to get started!
