La minoritaria presencia de mujeres en perfiles STEM pone en riesgo los avances en la equidad

Así lo asegura Beatriz Ardid,Gerente de PeopleMatters, consultora especializada en Gestión de Personas, en un momento dominado por la escasa participación de las mujeres en perfiles STEM, un hecho que sin duda está poniendo en riesgo los avances en la equidad. Los datos hablan por sí solos: aunque la mujer se ha incorporado de forma progresiva al mercado de trabajo hasta llegar prácticamente a la paridad dentro de la población activa (el 53,41% de las mujeres estaban en activo a finales de 2016 frente a un porcentaje del 33,22% que marca el punto de incorporación laboral de la Generación X), lo cierto es que su situación general no es igualitaria en absoluto.

En definitiva, cada vez trabajan más mujeres pero ocupan los puestos de menor responsabilidad y se siguen enfrentando a una enorme brecha salarial. 10 claves para implantar la educación en STEAM en el aula. Se acabaron las barreras entre disciplinas.

10 claves para implantar la educación en STEAM en el aula

Educar en STEAM (es decir, en Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería, Arte y Matemáticas) es hacerlo combinando diferentes materias para que el alumnado aprenda haciendo. A continuación, os mostramos 10 claves para que podáis poner en práctica iniciativas en STEAM en vuestras clases. 1. Galicia fomenta la educación STEM. STEM to STEAM. Since its founding in 1877, RISD has consistently upheld its mission to educate the public about the vital role of art and design in society.

STEM to STEAM

Today, the RISD community remains committed to the belief that the arts and design, in concert with fields like science and technology, will bring about the global innovation needed in the 21st century. STEM to STEAM is a RISD-led initiative to add Art and Design to the national agenda of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and research in America. STEM + Art = STEAM. The goal is to foster the true innovation that comes with combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer. RISD offers endless examples of how art and design education teaches the flexible thinking, risk-taking and creative problem solving needed to solve today’s most complex and pressing challenges – from healthcare to urban revitalization to global warming. STEM vs. STEAM: Do the Arts Belong? Published Online: November 18, 2014 —Image by Moisey/Ildar Sagdejev/LucaDetomi/Randomil/Ross Brenneman By Anne Jolly A tug of war is currently looming between proponents of STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math) and advocates for STEAM lessons, which add art to the mix.

STEM vs. STEAM: Do the Arts Belong?

Whichever side you come down on, here are some ideas for you to mull over. First, consider the why and what of STEM education. A number of K-12 programs currently fly under the STEM banner. 1. STEM, then, is a specific program designed for a specific purpose—to integrate and apply knowledge of math and science in order to create technologies and solutions for real-world problems, using an engineering design approach. Recently, the idea of adding the arts to STEM programs has been gaining momentum. 1. The focus of STEM is developing rigorous math and science skills through engineering. 2.

You might envision an open studio, pupils all in a row, lined up to practice their pliés and jetés at the command of their instructor. Not so much at Boston Arts Academy, where art is “central to learning.” That’s STEAM in action. As STEAM has become increasingly prominent, some have argued that the general addition of an “arts” component distracts from the focus on the hard sciences. Others argue that there needs to be separation between the arts and sciences to prevent anything taking away from the focus on STEM education. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics. STEM or STEAM? We're Missing the Point. STEM education is one of the most talked about subjects in our country today — and for good reason.

STEM or STEAM? We're Missing the Point

From our K-12 system and post-secondary institutions to business, industry and government, most everyone is focused on — or at least has something to say about — STEM education as a key solution to improve educational performance and solve the persistent workforce development problems that plague our nation. But what exactly is STEM education? It’s much more than science, technology, engineering and math, which are usually taught as discrete subjects with math down one hallway in the school and science down another. Rather, STEM is the applied, integrated approach to those subjects. It is about using math and science to solve real-world challenges and problems. On a recent flight to a speaking engagement in California, I had a conversation with the person sitting next to me.

STEM to STEAM. Its Academy.
