What is STEAM?
STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
Using STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century! This comprehensive article will help you understand the keys to a meaningful STEAM effort.
How will this course help you improve?
This is a practical workshop that welcomes Teachers from different subject fields and levels. We will work in small groups and design ready-to-use projects, but also give an overview of the philosophy of STEAM and Project-based-Learning. The workshop will follow project phases from the design to actual implementation and reflection. In all of the stages, we will look at the theoretical background, real-life examples, and work on the project itself.
