Integrated STEM Education

New Content Item

An integrated approach to STEM education continues to be a big, challenging, and exciting, topic area, where discussion is always ongoing. As Prof. Yeping Li, Editor-in-Chief of the journal, said in an interview on the SpringerOpen blog, "There are many unanswered questions in STEM education. On one hand, STEM is not a single subject content discipline, but on the other, certain practices of integrated STEM are needed in school education, but generally lacking. For example, we all know that people often need to solve problems in real world that requires the use of integrated knowledge and skills from multiple disciplines. However, current school education is typically subject content-based education, and we simply leave the knowledge integration part to students themselves to manage in the future. There is an apparent gap between what and how school education provides and what and how students will likely need to use in the future".
