This is a great starter list...Can you suggest more?

 

My suggestion would be to have university seniors and graduate students come in as guest speakers to cover a topic related to their research project and promote STEM based education.

A great list on how to bring STEM into the classroom.  Teachers are so busy and these are easy ways to incorporate STEM lessons with things that teachers are already teaching.

Teacher collaboration, professional communities improve many elementary school students' math scores

Teacher collaboration, professional communities improve many elementary school students' math scores | Diversity in Science | Scoop.it
Many elementary students' math performance improves when their teachers collaborate, work in professional learning communities or do both, yet most students don't spend all of their elementary school years in these settings, a new study shows.
Brenee King's insight:

Makes sense to me: "School leaders require a supportive district that provides resources for professional development while also allowing teachers time to work collaboratively. Leadership must also work to obtain teacher buy-in, as a forced community is rarely productive." - Stephanie Moller

12 Technologies To Dominate STEM Education | Campus Technology

12 Technologies To Dominate STEM Education | Campus Technology | Diversity in Science | Scoop.it

The use of big data, instruction through mobile devices, online learning (including MOOCs), and virtual and remote laboratories that emulate real ones are the technologies that will have the greatest impact on "STEM+" education over the next year.

 

These are the findings of a group of global experts who weighed in on emerging technologies that will most influence education over the next five years. STEM+ covers the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) as well as additional skills for applying knowledge of those subjects in the real world.

 

A report compiled by a consortium of organizations identified 12 technologies that will dominate conversations in education through 2018, as well as the top trends and challenges that will affect these shifts as they unfold.

This is an interesting report and perspective on future STEM-based learning trends.

Susan M. Baxter's curator insight, October 29, 2013 5:50 PM

Report co-sponsored by IEEE focuses the academic technology debates on STEM curriculum - and emphasizes (rightly in my opinion) the use of publicly available "big data" sets for course-embedded research.
