Ferris ISD BADGE Program

Building A Dynamic Group of Educators

Vision

In Ferris ISD, all leaders create a culture where teachers and learners are empowered to use technology in innovative ways to enrich teaching and learning.

Every teacher will implement technology-rich lessons that encourage active and project-based learning opportunities for our students to equip them to take ownership of their own learning and prepare them to thrive in the 21st Century.

Every student will become a responsible digital citizen who knows how to harness the learning potential of digital media in a 24/7 connected world and do it safely, effectively, ethically, and respectfully.
