This theory-to-practice guide offers leading-edge ideas for wide-scale curriculum reform in sciences, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics--the STEAM subjects. Chapters emphasize the critical importance of current and emerging digital technologies in bringing STEM education up to speed and implementing changes to curricula at the classroom level. Of particular interest are the diverse ways of integrating the liberal arts into STEM course content in mutually reshaping humanities education and scientific education. This framework and its many instructive examples are geared to ensure that both educators and students can become innovative thinkers and effective problem-solvers in a knowledge-based society. Included in the coverage: Reconceptualizing a college science learning experience in the new digital era. Using mobile devices to support formal, informal, and semi-formal learning. Change of attitudes, self-concept, and team dynamics in engineering education. The language arts as foundational for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Can K-12 math teachers train students to make valid logical reasoning? Moving forward with STEAM education research. Emerging Technologies for STEAM Education equips educators, education researchers, administrators, and education policymakers with curricular and pedagogical strategies for making STEAM education the bedrock of accessible, relevant learning in keeping with today's digital advances.

Closing the Gap is an ISTE book series designed to reflect the contributions of multiple stakeholders seeking to ensure that digital equity is achieved on campuses, in classrooms, and throughout education. In this series, authors Nicol R. Howard, Sarah Thomas, and Regina Schaffer offer historical and philosophical insights while exploring challenges and solutions unique to teacher preparation programs, pre-service and in-service teachers, and instructional coaches. The first book in the series, Closing the Gap: Digital Equity Strategies for Teacher Prep Programs, includes: a discussion of historical placement of "digital equity" content in teacher education programs; research- and evidence-based vignettes from teacher educators, higher education deans, and department coordinators demonstrating best practices; examples of ISTE Standards in action; practical tips for preparing future teachers to navigate the process; positive applications of digital equity; and a hypothesis for the future direction of digital equity in teacher education. This book will inform teacher education programs and future research, providing positive examples and recommendations for educational technology leaders and educators on moving toward digital equity in K12 and teacher education.
Educators who engage with today's students appreciate the impact digital media has on the lives of our younger generations. Learners of today consume, create, and publish multimedia content continuously, using a variety of devices such as cell phones, tablets, and computers. They generate original and innovative products through programs, apps, and the Internet as a means of communicating and representing their lives, ideas, and feelings. Unfortunately, not all students understand how to apply media literacy or media safety, and many lack knowledge of how to truly analyze media content for its value in society. Today's educators must learn to harness the enthusiasm students have for digital media (content that uses a combination of text, images, audio, animation, and video) into daily lessons in order to enhance student interest, engagement, motivation, and achievement in classroom environments. This book addresses these vital considerations, thereby empowering teachers and students to benefit from the application of digital media in their classrooms, both as a compelling assessment tool and as an engaging teaching strategy.
