Partnerships between schools and companies are the key for introducing ICT in STEM education




In its fourth issue of the “ICT in STEM Education – Impact and Challenges” series, the STEM Alliance highlights the importance of partnerships.

Public and private schools are encouraged to work together with publishers and ICT companies as these partnerships represent the key to successfully boosting the use of ICT at school.

The multi-stakeholder approach is identified as the most effective in bringing fruitful outcomes for both the education system and the job market.

 

The publication focuses on the importance for schools to act as a whole rather than having a single class approach when it comes to promoting ICT in STEM education. School-wide initiatives are more successful. Additionally, the development of STEM curricula at school level can better integrate technology in class, along with continuous and compulsory training for teachers.


A large number of technical and administrative barriers to ICT deployment are identified in the publication. Among others, these include the lack of systemic and targeted spending on technology, and teachers’ poor preparation concerning how to concretely integrate ICT in lessons.
