  • Creativity and Innovation   Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. A. Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes. B. Create original works as a means of personal or group expression. C. Use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues. D. Identify trends and forecast possibilities.
  • Proficient by End of Grade 8 Students apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes Identify a real-world problem that would benefit from an improved solution. Generate multiple possible ways of solving the problem. Consider the parameters that must be met to achieve a workable solution. Select the best solution from among the possible alternatives. Describe or create the new products (e.g., movies, public service announcements, websites) or processes that could be used to provide innovative solutions in the real world. Students create original works as a means of personal or group expression Create original animations or videos about a topic of personal interest or in response to a learning activity and document a reflection on the quality of the production (e.g., work illustrating reactions to communicating with students in other cultures about some global issue). Students use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues Describe and illustrate a complex content-related concept or process using a model, simulation, or concept-mapping software. Students identify trends and forecast possibilities Design and implement a strategy for gathering and manipulating data needed to make a data-driven prediction or to forecast possibilities
