About the Series:
Research has shown that students who have access to the arts, as well as science and math, are more invested in learning, more motivated to attend and stay in school, and more apt to perform better in all subjects. That’s why STEAM education is becoming more common across the globe. STEAM Integration explores the theories, connections, creation, & practice of integrating STEAM in students’ lives. This 4-course series focuses on how to incorporate various standards within the STEAM content areas through project-based learning frameworks to create truly authentic STEAM teaching experiences. You will walk away from these courses with a series of strategies and resources that will empower you to create a STEAM integration initiative that works for you and your organization.
If you’d like to learn more about Industry 4.0 and how STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) fits, and how to incorporate it, then these courses are for you. These courses are designed to work independently or collaboratively, depending on your needs.
