Cisco Administrator Badge

Administrators have tremendous responsibility for visionary leadership as they support their faculty members in using new digital technologies and specifically, collaboration tools.  Leadership is defined by effective communication and collaboration and must be demonstrated by administrators in many forms, from solid curriculum development to promoting PLCs within the school and the use of effective tools for parent communication and finding new ways to reach students where they are in their learning.  Administrators are a key component in creating a strong culture for professional practice and systemic improvement through visionary leadership and modeling.  To support this, we look to the ISTE Standards for Administrators as a guide to obtaining The Cisco Administrator Badge.
