Creative Technology Integration and Badges! -- Rubrics and Expected Outcomes

I have been tasked as the Technology Integration Specialist for my small rural district of 500 students. We have 1:1 iPads and have rolled backwards in our creative structure...

I will be working with students and teachers to help bring the creativity back into the use of iPads. I need expected outcomes and rubrics to showcase creativity for both student mentors and teachers to show their mastery in different applications so they can earn "badges" based upon each item completed. There are a lot of rubrics out there but I am wondering if anyone has one that is narrowed towards creativity (and not so specific for the Everyone Can Create lessons/projects.)

We started building proficiency scales for the 4Cs last year in my former position, I'm not sure if you can use any of it or not, but here is what we had created as a draft. This was designed around 5th grade students, then would have been scaffolded down through the grades.

Hi Stephanie! Have you seen the book Elements of Learning before? There is a section about Communication & Creation that might support this need. Within it, there are interactive widgets, guiding questions, and exemplar lessons created to help educators design lessons that increase opportunities for creativity.

The Everyone Can Create (Video, Music, Drawing, and Photo) books are written at about a 4th grade level. They include SO many options for creativity to be seamlessly integrated into curriculum.

Hi Stephanie! A couple of resources came to mind when I was reading your post. JJ Purton Jones created three guides specific to primary grades (K-5) that walk students through earning badges by demonstrating proficiency/creativity in their work on their iPads. Here's the link to the teacher guide: There's also a K-2 and a 3-5 book with scaffolded tasks.

If you're more in search of a rubric that's focused on student-centered, active, constructive uses of technology, Liz Kolb's Triple E Framework is a great resource! She's developed rubrics to align with the framework and has clear explanations and examples of how technology should engage learners and enhance and extend learning. Here's a website where you can read more:

Hope this is helpful as you continue working to develop something that's a best fit for your school!
