There’s a lot of hiss about STEAM education, but what’s it all about?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, and it has become increasingly fizz-worthy due to its relevance in today’s world. The 21st Century demands professionals who are not only technological skillful but also proficient in creative problem solving, collaboration, communication, design, and engineering[
At Edu21 we do not implement STEAM, only a combination of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. When children learn STEAM, they combine many disciplines and practice transversal skills like creativity, inquiry, critical thinking, and problem solving. Many educators still employ traditional learning models, which are ineffective and frankly, unexciting, ways for children to learn STEAM like memorization, worksheets and textbook work.
Edu21 take a different approach to STEAM education. In learning material we use projects, themes, engagement, student’s voice and choice, hands on learning, and These learning experiences foster transversal competencies early in a child’s life, and children can then use such skills to learn and explore other content areas throughout their developmental years.
