Tinkercad Created by a former Google engineer, the 3D design app Tinkercad helps create and print 3D models. Blokify Scratch Jr. BrainPOP

25 STEM Education Apps You Need in 2015 As the new year approaches, the thought on everyone’s mind is how to make 2015 even more interactive, educational, and engaging for STEM students than the past year. Indeed, it has become a national priority to develop new ways to entice students to STEM careers and offer engaging ways to teach STEM that dismantles old and less-effective learning methods. From flipped learning to incorporating Learning Management Systems (LMS), to augmented reality, teachers are talking about how to keep moving STEM education forward. According to a recent Teachercast article, 5 EdTech Trends Changing Education for the Longterm, one of the biggest trends for 2015 will be the incorporation of more apps into classroom curriculum including gamification, collaboration, self-learning and assessment apps. Terry Heick (@terryheick) at TeachThought echoed similar sentiments in his post 30 Trends in Education Technology for 2015 while pointing out the challenges of technology integration: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

100+ STEM iPad Apps For Learning 100+ STEM iPad Apps For Learning STEM education is “an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009) Not coincidentally, several other trends in learning–from mobile learning and tablets in the classroom, to personalized learning and adaptive learning apps–are all at least somewhat connected to STEM education, which makes the following collection of STEM iPad apps for learning from Listly user Randy Yerrick helpful. The list is impressively diverse, from communication tools (Skype) to social readers (Flipboard), to composition tools (Pages) to graphing calculators (Quick Graph).
