The Center on Online Learning’s fourth and final webinar for the 2013-14 school year was presented by our very own Dr. Jamie Basham. He presented on “Tech and Apps to Address STEM in Online Learning for Students with Disabilities.” He described how Universal Design for Learning applied to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), can help teachers (and students) become “learning engineers.” He described the UDL instruction planning process and provided some great potential tools to use including iTunesU, iBooks, MyScript Calculator, Videolicious, and many other resources. Jamie left the audience with lots of tools, ideas, and directions to explore to move their STEM instruction forward.

STEN vs STEAM - Why Art has Entered STEM (infographic)

STEN vs STEAM - Why Art has Entered STEM (infographic) | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are the center of attention in most US public schools today. The focus on STEM fields was initiated to increase global competitiveness and the project does have its merits. However, it has left the arts languishing far off in the periphery. This is quite unfortunate, as art education is known to improve academic performance."

Have you noticed that STEM has transformed to STEAM? The A stands for art and this infographic looks at how the introduction of art to STEM can make  a difference in the academic performance of students. The infographic shares statistics on the perception of STEM and facts about both STEM and the Arts. It looks at how each impact the brain and also statistics about the number of schools with arts (US only) as well looking at US STEM rankings and global arts education.

There is a reason that STEM is shifting to STEAM and this infographic provides an overview of some of the reasons this is taking place.
