WHY PROJECTS?

Project Based Learning is at the core of STLP. One of the largest competition areas is the STLP Project category. Project teams develop their project plans (Level i) and bring their ideas to present at Regional Qualifiers (Level 1) hoping to advance to STLP State (Level 2 & 3).

STLP Projects work to engage students through deeper learning that has long lasting benefits for students, classrooms, schools and communities. Benefits include:

  • Real-world relevance for learning

  • Demonstrations of Success Skills

  • Engages lower achieving students

  • Spotlight innovation and creativity

  • Develop stronger relationships

  • Perfect for NTI & Remote Learning

  • Impact student achievement

  • Strong motivator for daily attendance

  • Build on/extend existing projects

  • High level student engagement

  • Strategy to close achievement gaps

  • Maximize technology investments

  • Gain presentation skills & experience

  • Show tech competency for graduation

  • Model a positive learning culture

MAKE STANDARDS
MEANINGFUL

STLP Project Scoring Guides/Rubrics (Level 1 through Level 3) are modeled on the ISTE Standards for Students. Use these “I Am..” statements to translate rubric standards/indicators into more student-friendly language. Great for discussion.
