What are the four Cs? Communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity are the ISTE standards for both students and educators that teach, reinforce and strengthen digital skills. These standards were adopted by the Texas legislature in June 2017. SB 1839 also empowered the Texas State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) to create rules governing the creation of continuing professional education courses for in-service educators to learn more about digital learning, and provides guidance on what digital learning means and how it can empower teachers to bring a more robust, complete and up-to-date educational experience to classrooms.
These upcoming training opportunities offered through the Burleson Innovative Summer Development (BISD) program address the 4 Cs overall or specifically.
