STEM/STEAM MALET

  1. 1. IMMERSIVE RESIDENCY Sponsored by the Master of Arts in Learning & Emerging Technology program at SUNY Empire State College Contact Dr. Eileen O’Connor for details, on-boarding & access - eileen.oconnor@esc.edu Join faculty and graduate students in this 1 day immersion in a virtual reality environment to learn about AND experience existing and emerging technologies that are allowing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) enhanced by the A for art as well as ALL CONTENT AREAS to reach new heights. You only need a computer and internet to attend. Saturday – Oct. 12, 2019 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm (online) Receive a Certificate of Attendance and an eBadge on completion
  2. 2. FROM STEM TO STEAM: THEORY-GROUNDED AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS FOR INSTRUCTION Eileen O’Connor, Ph.D. Eileen.oconnor@esc.edu Items shown here: • Educational Grounding & Standards • Applications and Ideas • SUNY ESC - MALET • So, what’s the challenge? NOTE: this presentation highlights the STEM/STEAM field and presents selected work by SUNY Empire’s graduate students. THERE ARE NOT RESTRICTED TO MATH / SCIENCE INTERESTED STUDENTS - the technology and the arts are the bridge to essentially all content areas - see if / where a STEM / STEAM focus might be relevant to your interests - via single courses or the STEM & Emerging Technologies certificate in MALET NOTE: this presentation is Creative Commons license from Dr. Eileen O’Connor Science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics (STEAM) Open the slideshow, then click on the Settings/Gear icon - click on the notes at the bottom to read the text that explains the slides
  3. 3. STEM – Personal History (O’Connor’s background in field) • Middle school – St. Ignatius, Montana; Native American Reservation • Chemist > science & tech at IBM • STEMTEC – U. Mass & Amherst – 1999 – 2001 – NSF evaluator • Science ed / tech ed / STEM Education certificate • Before recent tech explosion – inquiry-based science • A Framework for K12 Science Education > NSTA & NCR > Next Generation Science Standards • Practices with inquiry • Inquiry – labs – cross disciplinary: have ALWAYS been lauded in the research . . . . So what’s the challenge?
  4. 4. NATIONAL K12 EFFORTS Engineering design now included NOT limited to K12 – but K12 is ahead in articulation
  5. 5. NATIONAL K12 EFFORTS What is STEAM? STEAM programs can also be referred to as “arts integration” or “STEM+Arts” programs. Although there are slight nuances to program implementation based on the term used, the important aspect of STEAM is integrated learning that incorporates the ideas of innovation, creativity, and design from the arts and applies them to observation, inquiry, and problem solving processes found in STEM activities. https://www.csai-online.org/resources/stem-steam-resources-toolkit
  6. 6. . . . incorporates the ideas of innovation, creativity, and design from the arts and applies them to observation, inquiry, and problem solving processes found in STEM activities. https://www.csai-online.org/resources/stem-steam-resources-toolkit From creative designs to digital story-telling the “arts” bring innovation & enrichment that can turn STEM > STEAM
  7. 7. . . . incorporates the ideas of innovation, creativity, and design from the arts and applies them to observation, inquiry, and problem solving processes found in STEM activities. https://www.csai-online.org/resources/stem-steam-resources-toolkit Many new art, augmented & 3-d tools bring the arts & innovations into STEAM

  11. 11. CONSTRUCTING MEANING - THOUGHTS FROM THE UK
  12. 12. THEORY-GROUNDING “Constructivism is a learning theory that perceives learning as a process of constructing knowledge based from experience. Issues of difficulty in translating this learning theory into a teaching and learning practice have become a debate among educational researchers. One of the learning approaches that reflect the theory of constructivism is project-based learning or PjBL. Terms such as “authentic learning activity” and “hands-on learning” is commonly represented as constructivist which believes and addressed learning through rigorous, relevant and hands-on practice.” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/320558653_Project- Based_Learning_from_Constructivism_Point_of_View
  13. 13. THEORY-GROUNDING - CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS SLIDE Suggestions: • Learning tasks need to be designed in a way it requires learners to engage in more cognitive demanding tasks. • Continuous assessment and monitoring is also challenging in PjBL setting. • Assessment for learning and learner’s reflection of learning are also integral to PjBL.
