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, last year we developed and expanded to the new Student Innovation SHOWcase!

In 2016, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) released student friendly standards that were meant to prepare our students for the 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.  

ISTE Student Standards

The Student Innovation SHOWcase 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 again in 2018!
