Over 60 Great Resources for STEAM Teachers

Today we stumbled upon this interesting resource from OER Commons that offers over 60 educational materials teachers can use to design their own STEAM curriculum. Each of these materials come with a short abstract on what it is and how you can use it in your lessons. It also provides information regarding grade level it can be used with, subject area, language, media type, accompanying activities, and many more. While almost all of these lessons are provided under a CC license, you need to make sure you read conditions of use and ‘Use Guideline’ which are usually found on the lefthand side of the lesson page. You can search for STEAM lessons in OER Commons by subject, educational level or standard. 10 of The Best Chrome Apps for Math Teachers. Here is what we have been working on over the last weekend.

Despite the European economic crisis, most countries in Europe continue to invest in the future by lending political and financial support to increasing students' interest in pursuing science careers, to improving their performance in related subjects at school, and to enhancing their motivation.


A new Scientix report investigates the strategies and measures in place in thirty different countries across Europe. This report focuses in particular on policies and initiatives in teacher education, based on data retrieved from National Contact Points for STEM education in Europe. A vast majority of the countries observed are paying more attention to improving the provision of professional development for in-service teachers of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects than initial teacher training. The report argues that the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) agenda could be usefully embraced more extensively to motivate students to pursue STEM studies and careers. 14 cuentas de Twitter sobre STEM que no debes perderte (@balhisay) El desarrollo de la competencia STEM (en el inglés original Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas, por si es la primera vez que te encuentras con este acrónimo) plantea el reto de abordar con un enfoque holístico el trabajo en estas cuatro áreas de conocimiento.

Las tendencias educativas internacionales claramente se inclinan hacia la promoción de esta visión integrada con el propósito de estimular el talento en áreas productivas que hoy son claves para la mejora de la competitividad de los países. Incluso hay una iniciativa que incluye las artes en una ampliada competencia STEAM (puedes encontrar algunos ejemplos muy interesantes en Proyectos STEAM: crear para aprender), algo que aún se nos antoja más lejano a la realidad de nuestros centros al combinar humanidades y tecnología. Pedro Landín es profesor de Secundaria en las áreas de Tecnología y Matemáticas lo que le permite tener una visión más global sobre la competencia STEM. David Álvarez. Comparte este post en:|Más.
