"Para saber lo que queremos hacer, tenemos que hacer lo que queremos saber" (traducción libre de Aristóteles). De aquí al aprendizaje basado en la acción hay un paso. Por eso se dice, con acierto a mi juicio, que se sabe cuando se sabe decir; o que el saber se construye en la comunicación. Todo ello apela, una vez más, a una realidad que es más que obvia para la experiencia subjetiva de cualquiera: "somos protagonistas de nuestro propio aprendizaje"; "aprendemos haciendo" (learning by doing); "nadie puede aprender por nosotros", etc.

Otra cuestión, no menor, es que somos protagonistas precarios, necesitados de ayuda, por tanto. Pero vamos al grano. Infographic: The rise of STEM in schools. What is STEM and why is it such a big deal in schools these days?

Infographic: The rise of STEM in schools

In 2005 a paper was published that sounded alarm bells about the state of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education in the United States. Eighth graders placed 12th in the world in those subjects in testing that year, and 51% of U.S. patents had been awarded to foreign nationals and foreign companies. The fear was that if the United States didn’t do something to prepare the workforce for these skills and career fields that the U.S. economy would eventually suffer dire consequences.

STEAM STEM and STEM Education have been around for a while now. More and more educators and researchers have realized the potential benefits STEM education can contribute to children’s growth and development, and start to promote it in and out of the classrooms. Nowadays, conversations about including arts in the STEM educations are getting more attention. An evolution of STEM to STEAM is happening. In a nutshell, the conventional STEM education model emphasizes the exploration of these four fields, but it doesn’t teach students the critical process of creativity and innovation, which always works in tandem with STEM to solve problems.

Turn STEM into STEAM: Storytelling with ScratchJr

I have a confession. Even though I know how vital and empowering learning to code is for my primary students, I often struggle when I try to embed those skills into core content lessons. My intermediate (third, fourth, and fifth grade) students have no trouble using Scratch or Hopscotch to create a game to practice math facts or an animation depicting the Battle of Yorktown. But, it can be a challenge to get my first and second graders to a similar level of coding comfort. Courtesy of ScratchJr When the MIT Media Lab and researchers at Tufts University launched ScratchJr last year, I was thrilled. Note: ScratchJr (available in both English and Spanish) has its own language. Personal Stories Get Interactive One way I have woven ScratchJr into student storytelling is to transform the personal narrative assignment into an interactive program. This lesson easily adapts to fit a variety of personal narrative assignments.

Bringing Engineering Design To The Classroom. My biggest regret as an educator is that throughout the first half of my career, I continually underestimated the abilities of middle school students.

Bringing Engineering Design To The Classroom

(Slow to learn, I would later underestimate kindergarteners as well.) It’s not that I thought that they were unintelligent. Nor did I think they lacked creativity. I just didn’t bother to ask for their input and, since they were fidgety 13 year olds, I assumed that more structure equaled a better learning environment. I thought that if I fed them a nice dose of PowerPoints, lab experiences, and classroom discussions, that they would walk out of room 8c with everything they needed to be successful in their high school science courses and beyond. Resources and Downloads for STEM. Resources: The STEM Programme Index.

There's a growing smorgasbord of initiatives and resources beyond the classroom supporting the push to improve STEM learning outcomes, so finding one to fit your students' needs at any given moment in time can feel a little overwhelming.

Resources: The STEM Programme Index

In an attempt to make things easier for educators, the first national STEM Programme Index has just been released. SPI 2016 brings together information on more than 250 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics opportunities available to schools and students. It is available via this link, or you can download a PDF copy at the foot of this article. The guide is a joint initiative of the Office of the Chief Scientist and peak association the Australian Industry Group (AIG). 18 STEM Activity Ideas, Resources to Promote Summer Learning. Online publication for school educators. Throughout August, Teacher is exploring the theme of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning.

Today’s article shares a review of evidence-based practice for primary STEM teaching. While the need for STEM-related expertise in the workforce is growing, the number of students choosing STEM subjects at secondary and tertiary level in Australia is stagnating. Although decisions about future pathways are made later on in a student’s school career, teachers in the primary years have an important role to play. A new review offers practical ideas for primary STEM teaching. What is S.T.E.M. and why should I teach it? - More Than a Worksheet. What is S.T.E.M.? S.T.E.M. is an abbreviation for Science Technology Engineering and Math. It is not a particular method or way of teaching, but more of a movement to integrate these subjects into the curiculum with real-world, problem-based activities. S.T.E.M. in education is not about adding something new to your lesson plans.

February 3, 2017 Over the last few days we spent sometime going through the piles of tools saved in our archive and managed to select the ones that fit perfectly for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering ,Art, and Math) programs. Under each category we featured four representative tools that will help students cultivate the skills involved in that category. The overall aim is to provide teachers with a handy resource to use with their students to help them develop critical thinking skills and adopt 'an engineering or design approach towards real-world problems while building on their mathematics and science base'.

STEM education is one of the most talked about subjects in our country today — and for good reason. 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.
