S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach towards learning that integrates two or more areas of study Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math-as entry points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. This course addresses how to blend these content areas to enhance learning across the curriculum. Studies of differentiated instruction show that S.T.E.A.M. pushes curriculum forward providing momentum that may result in students taking thoughtful risks, engaging in experiential learning, persisting in problem-solving, embracing collaboration, and exploring the creative process.
With S.T.E.A.M. lessons students begin to dabble and experiment as innovators, peer educators, classroom leaders, and 21st-century learners. Participants will design a S.T.E.A.M. curriculum
for their particular discipline, locate and adapt available cross-curricular lessons, and seek content area resources that will provide that extra push for S.T.E.A.M. thinking.
S.T.E.A.M. curriculum provides creativity, supports problem-solving, activates the memory system and connects to analytical skills. This course is an excellent resource for a collaborative group or staff book study.
