Student Innovation SHOWcase

For over a decade, the METC has sponsored the Show-Me a Movie Contest that showcased and honored several hundred students. Because of it's success and an interest in the region to expand the digital projects students create, we have developed and expanded the new Student Innovation SHOWcase to include digital movie making and more!

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) recently released student friendly standards that are meant to prepare them for their future.  Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Innovation are at the heart of these standards.  You can find these same traits in the Missouri Learning Standards.  Students all over the region are being innovative everyday in and out of the classroom.  It is time they had a large audience to SHOWcase their ideas and work.  Coming to the Midwest Educational Technology Community's (METC) 2017 conference is the Student Innovation SHOWcase.  Students from all over the region will be able to SHOWcase their work for the 2,000+ educators who attend the annual conference.  

For this inaugural year, we will SHOWcase innovation in five categories. These categories will be Show-me:  a Podcast, a Movie, Coding, Digital Tech/Art and Maker.  Students will need to connect their entry to the ISTE Standards for Students, Missouri's State Standards (or the student's district/state standards) and/or NGSS standards.  We at the METC are excited to see all the innovation on display!
