Town Hall Conversations: Technology and Engineering Bring STEM to Life!

This virtual discussion series tackles a fresh topic each month and is guided by a panel of experts and practitioners from both within and beyond the technology and engineering education field—and by YOU! Register in advance to submit your most critical questions related to the conversation topic for consideration. Additionally, every Town Hall Conversation will result in a call to action and an informational download.

Join us as we discuss strategies and support for communicating the importance of Technology and Engineering Education through an Integrative STEM approach. These Town Hall sessions are designed to provide educators the necessary tools to assure success of the social and emotional well-being of students, cultivating a welcoming and safe school environment, and encouraging a stem-centric growth mindset to build technological and engineering capable and confident students.

TOWN HALL CONVERSATIONS ARE FREE TO ALL!

Inaugural Session: 
A Year Like No Other! Lessons Learned and Looking Forward - Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy: The Role of Technology and Engineering in STEM Education (STEL)

JUNE 16, 2021 at 7:00pm EDT - FREE REGISTRATION

The 2020–2021 school year presented unique challenges that initiated tremendous innovation, creative problem solving, taking a deeper look at our society and selves, and bridging the gap of connectivity during this time of isolation. This school year also launched the updated Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy: The Role of Technology and Engineering in STEM Education (STEL). All educators have a one-of-a-kind story from the past year, as well as great takeaways that emerged from the necessity of creating a “new normal” that was nothing like anything we’ve experienced. How do we make the most of STEL and what we’ve learned this past year, taking it with us as we begin the shift into another school year that will likely be different as well? What will help us to move forward in the most positive way for our learners, our communities, and ourselves?
