Keeping Students Engaged with Technology
What is S.T.E.M?
Let's Google it!
Our recent national educator survey (Grunwald, 2009) indicates that more teachers than ever before are turning to digital media resources to help their students understand concepts, practice new skills and engage in exciting, authentic learning experiences.
Why Does it Matter?
What does S.T.E.M create?
define questions and problems, design investigations to gather data, collect and organize data, draw conclusions, then apply understandings to new and novel situations.
- creatively use science, mathematics, and technology concepts and apply them to the engineering design process
- recognize the needs of the
world and creatively design, test, redesign,
and then implement solutions
- able to use initiative and self-
motivation to set agendas, develop and gain self-
confidence, and work within time specified frames.
able to apply rational
and logical thought
Technologically Literate Students
understand and explain the nature
of technology, develop skills needed,
and apply technology appropriately.
Trying to solve real world problems
Digital Science Journals
Student created PowerPoint's that let them manipulate pictures, definitions, and ideas.
The demand for workers in the STEM fields is closely correlated with global competativeness.
“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
"Children are fascinated with building and with taking things apart to see how they work, they engineer informally all the time. By encouraging these explorations in elementary school, we can keep these interests alive. Describing their activities as "engineering" when they are engaged in the natural design process can help children develop positive associations with engineering, and increase their desire to pursue such activities in the future." -Museum of Science
"Engineering projects integrate other disciplines. Engaging students in hands-on, real-world engineering experiences can enliven math and science and other content areas. Engineering projects can motivate students to learn math and science concepts by illustrating relevant applications." -Museum of Science
Children are born with the innate desire to build, take things apart, and be hands-on in their learning.
Teachers are using SmartBoards and ELMO in the classroom to engage students
Science is the cornerstone of 21st education.
