I like how the information in this infographic is broken up into parts Space, Atmosphere, Sea, underearth and ground. It has lots of statistics that are backed up by sources.

We need more teachers adapting STEM topics to use these new methods of teaching.  

N Kaspar's curator insight, November 18, 2013 1:22 AM

One, some or all of these video's may be useful for framing conversations about different types of learning.  Worth the look.

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is a method initiated by teacher-facilitated discussions of art images and documented to have a cascading positive effect on both teachers and students. It is perhaps the simplest way in which teachers and schools can provide students with key behaviors sought by Common Core Standards: thinking skills that become habitual and transfer from lesson to lesson, oral and written language literacy, visual literacy, and collaborative interactions among peers.

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

In the innovation field, a rebirth of Renaissance thinking is brewing. Scientists and engineers are engaging with the arts to think creatively.

 

The idea is also currently reflected in the debates on re-vamping the U.S. educational system to boost the innovation skills of U.S. students. Media artist John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, has spoken at numerous events — including before Congress — about the value of incorporating the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational initiatives, turning STEM to “STEAM,” as Maeda has said.

The Arts is the mixing bowl for science, technology, engineering and math.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 6, 2013 8:20 PM

Some disciplines have evolved to their own death. Engineering has evolved logically, but not necessarily culturally,” Silver of Intel and Makey Makey, who was trained as an electrical engineer, told me at PopTech. “Creativity isn’t part of that any more. So we look to where it is; we’re desperate for it. We look to art. And it’s wonderful, because it’s there.”
