High Possibility STEM Classrooms: Integrated STEM Learning in Research and Practice

  • How can you build your capacity and confidence to lead and teach Integrated STEM well in K-6classrooms and what could assist you to do that?
  • Imagine that capacity and confidence-building in Integrated STEM might take place while you are leading or teaching in a K-6 school where the students are:
    • from language backgrounds other than English
    • from low SES families
    • learning in highly urbanized, metropolitan schools.
  • This session will share findings from research in Integrated STEM in Australian schools conducted in early, elementary and middle years classrooms with teachers and students where the notion of building professional capacity and confidence was front of mind.
