ITEEA Presents on Empowering Educators to Implement Effective Integrative STEM Ed at STEM Leadership Alliance Summit

July 08, 2019

The STEM Leadership Alliance is a collaboration of five major STEM organizations: National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM), International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA), and American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).  Individually, these leading STEM organizations advance the work of educators and students across the country. As a collaborative, they will help disrupt the manner in which integrated STEM is implemented.

The Alliance is composed of leading businesses, non-profit organizations and foundations committed to advancing STEM education and linking it to the career needs of the future.  The Alliance expanded to include out-of-school organizations, museums, student-family organizations and other community shareholders dedicated to integrated STEM teaching and learning.

The STEM Alliance is lauching this partnership with a Summit, July 7-11 in Orlando, Florida, where ITEEA Executive Director, Steve Barbato, and STEM Center for Teaching and Learning Director, Jennifer Buelin, presented "Empowering Educators to Effectively Implement Integrative STEM Education for ALL Students!" Click here to view the presentation

The Summit goals include:

  • Understand the ecosystems’ (including the K-12 education, higher education, parents, non-profits, museums, businesses and foundations) capacity and power to infuse integrated STEM in school and out of school that increase opportunities for every student.
  • Support schools, districts and states to infuse integrated STEM across the content areas that are equitable and accessible for ALL students.
  • Cultivate leaders’ integrated STEM skills through effective models and strategies in order to close the STEM skills gap so ALL students can be successful in college and/or careers and in making sense of their world.
