The Importance of Creating an Integrative STEM Culture

New studies indicate by 2030 all jobs will include STEM. STEM, however, has been used as an acronym and is taught in silos. It is equated with an activity such as a project or a robotics club. STEM needs to connect science, math, engineering, and technology and in order to do this, the capacity of educators needs to be built to develop Integrative STEM units of instruction. Right now, there has never been a time that has been more important for schools, districts, states, nonprofits, parents, community, business, and higher education to come together to support the needs of students.  By creating an integrative STEM Culture, this will transform the learning whether it is in person, remote, or hybrid. This is an opportunity to come together to support ALL students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and our future leaders.

In this keynote, from a teacher just like you, we will define the technology and engineering educator's superpowers that help students succeed. When harnessed correctly, these superpowers inspire the future generation and the future of education as we know it. You will walk away with an understanding of your purpose in the larger educational system and more strategies to add to your tool belt.

International Application of Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy: The Role of Technology and Engineering in STEM Education

This keynote presentation will examine some of the international curriculum developments in Technology Education and speculate about the applicability of the ITEEA US Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy to these developments. There are 19 international ITEEA STEM Centres around the world, some of which used the previous Standards for a range of purposes, and their future use of STEL will be discussed.

The presentation will be framed within international concepts of post colonialism, post modernism and neoliberalism which both significantly impact international educational developments and provide a framework for the critique of such developments.
