Synopsis

Technological innovation and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) are everywhere: in homes, businesses, and educational institutions. This course builds on knowledge and skills developed in the Foundations of STEM education course. Students will be exposed to and investigate theory and practice related to the integration of digital technologies into STEM education. In this course students will explore a range of digital technologies which support STEM learning, both in the individual disciplines and in an integrated manner. As they design strategies for the integration of technology into STEM education students will consider how these align with the formal curriculum in their context. Students will develop a STEM PLN and explore digital pedagogical frameworks and a range of thinking frameworks related to STEM. Students will work both collaborative and undependably. Students will have the opportunity to engage with the course context, their peers and the teaching team through synchronous and asynchronous manners. Those students who are Australian Teachers will have the opportunity to demonstrate the relevant Australia Professional Standards.
