Become a Wixie Certified Educator

To earn a Wixie Certified Educator badge, you will need to demonstrate technical expertise with Wixie by creating one of the student projects outlined in the list of lessons on Creative Educator. To demonstrate instructional expertise, you will then write a creative Wixie lesson of your own, develop an assessment and submit it along with a high-quality example of student work for the project. 

If you do not have access to Wixie through your school, you can use a trial version (30-days).

Step 1 - Use Wixie's tools

Create a project based on one of these specific Creative Educator lessons. Follow the ideas in the lesson (you are welcome to modify for your learners) and create the project as if you were a student. All samples must include text, images, and voice narration. Write a paragraph reflecting on your experience with the lesson and using Wixie as a student.

Note: If you have already done one of the lessons listed on this Creative Educator page with your students, an acceptable alternative is to share a link to a sample of student work and it's authentication key so we can view it.

Step 2 - Write a Wixie lesson

Create a lesson plan using the Creative Educator model, including sections for Task, Engage, Create, Share, and Assessment. The lesson plan tasks should be written for Webb's Depth of Knowledge level 2 or higher (beyond a recitation of facts) and include the standards and learning goals the lesson addresses. You will also be asked to explain how the lesson moves students to higher-levels of thinking. You can use this CE lesson template (requires a Google account) or PDF.

Step 3 - Create a Wixie assessment

Create an assessment for student work using Wixie’s assessment tools. Depending on the age of your students, you can create a rubric- or checklist-style assessment. If you are unfamiliar with Wixie's assessment tools, watch a short video on how to create an assessment in Wixie.

Step 4 - Create a high-quality example and attach assessment

Create a high-quality example of a student product that meets your lesson’s assessment criteria. It would be ideal if the sample included is from an actual student, but we understand that instructional situations/availability may vary and delivering the lesson may not always be an option.

You must attach the assessment you created to this Wixie sample. Click here to watch a short video if you are unfamiliar with this process.

Step 5 - Submit your work

Use this form to submit links to Wixie samples, your lesson plan, and reflections. You can use this checklist (requires Google account) or PDF to monitor your progress during the process. Certifications will be awarded at the end of each month.
