Teacher Competency, Complete with Digital Badges!


Yes, now you too, Incredibly Educated Houston Teaching Professional, can build confidence and competence with PowerUp! PowerUp is a new district-wide initiative that will transform teaching and learning! Earn micro-credentials through our unique competency-based professional learning model! Created in conjunction with the University of San Diego, the Houston Independent School District wants YOU to take advantage of our personalized professional learning for teachers. You can improve in personal growth, recognition, and clarity of structure and expectations- and share your growth on social media! FitBit competitions aren’t hip enough, so challenge your colleagues to a digital badging contest and show your administration who the most bestest teacher is!

Through the PowerUp Initiative (read about it here!), Digital Promise has helped to provide all high school students and teachers with 1:1 laptops and access to digital content- so challenge your students to a digital learning contest as you access our more than 140 micro-credtials!

(Disclaimer: Digital Promise created this program used on the HISD teacher profile. Do you fit the Houston teacher model? Read about that here!)
