STEM Endorsement Course 2: Integration of STEAM Innovations

This course is the second in a series of four courses that were collaboratively developed by the Bucks IU and Delaware Valley University and comprise the Bucks IU's STEAM (science, technology,engineering, arts, mathematics) Approach to the PDE STEM (science, technology, engineering,
and mathematics) Endorsement.

This course is designed to help teachers learn and demonstrate an understanding of the newer and emerging tools of the 21st Century. These STEAM tools can help teachers build relevant and engaging instruction, regardless of what content area they are teaching. These STEAM instructional tools can also help students see the connections between and among subjects, including the arts. In addition, this course will also help teachers see that STEAM tools and be used for problem solving and creation. Integrative approaches to K-12 STEAM education not only can help teachers and students see the connections between subjects but when taught in the context of real world issues, make instruction more engaging and meaningful.

In this course teachers will demonstrate an understanding and working skill set with collaboration tools, real time data collection, simulations, 3D design and 3D printing, and basic coding. In addition to core readings teachers will also explore how art skills and creations can be enhanced through STEAM tools. A common theme running throughout this course is the ability of students to create new expressions of multimedia and collaboration using 21st century tools.

*Completion of Course 1 is required prior to taking this course.*
