Digital Storytelling Evaluation Rubrics for Teachers

Are you integrating digital storytelling in your course with your students ? Are you looking for a carefully crafted rubric to help you guide your digital storytelling activities ? Well you don't have to go far, the answers are right below these couple of lines. This is probably the first time I am publishing a rubric on evaluating digital storytelling. I have previously featured several rubrics that are particularly technology focused and all are geared towards helping teachers better integrate technology into their teaching. Today and thanks to KSBE, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is introducing you to excellent digital storytelling  rubrics.

  1. One key issue with many of these digital storytelling rubrics is that two of them focus SOLELY on mechanics. Mechanics are important in any kind of storytelling, but even in digital storytelling, they are not as important as the story itself! What message are we sending children when the FIRST thing they see on a rubric is "transitions and edits" instead of "creativity"?

    Our messaging must always be consistent, and must reflect what ACTUALLY matters in "real life." In my own teaching practice, I mark EVERYTHING my students submit to me using the same five key elements. This means that whatever the project they decide to undertake, they know what to expect, and can tailor their efforts accordingly.

    1. Creativity/originality;
    2. Depth of understanding (of, for instance, the mechanics of the digital storytelling);
    3. Profundity of thought (i.e. storyboards );
    4. Effort & pertinence (i.e. how much effort went into the project? Was the aim appropriate?);
    5. Quality of communication (i.e. for instance, the intelligent use of appropriate videography techniques).

    My rubric clearly privileges higher-order thinking skills, and the message I send to my students with it is clear: Think deeply about everything you do, strive to understand it profoundly, work hard, be original, and reflect on the best ways to "tell" me (or their audience/readers/parents) about it.
