STEM Alliance publishes two reports on impacts and challenges of ICT in STEM education
The STEM Alliance has published two new literature reviews that demonstrate how the use of ICT in learning and teaching methods can enhance students' learning outcomes and digital competence.
The two reports, titled "ICT in STEM Education - Impacts and Challenges: On Students" and "ICT in STEM Education - Impacts and Challenges: On Teachers", are part of a series of literature reviews and special issues about STEM education.
"As these reviews show, innovative STEM educational practices, including the pedagogical use of ICT in STEM teaching and learning, are a key element in making science studies and careers more attractive for students. The contextualisation of STEM teaching via school-industry partnerships is also of paramount importance in achieving innovation in STEM education", says Marc Durando, Executive Director of European Schoolnet.
"The two reports demonstrate the potential benefit of mutual engagement between business and the education sector in order to achieve more innovation in STEM education. Business as usual is not an option. Multi-stakeholder collaboration on this topic is imperative to develop or consolidate existing partnerships in support of youth employability and inclusion, therefore making STEM careers more attractive for students", says Stefan Crets, Executive Director of CSR Europe.
