STEAM Ahead Australia Fostering 21st Century Critical and Creative Thinking Skills

March 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Learning a STEM to STE(A)M Sustainable Approach:
In this workshop, teachers will learn about the changes occurring in Australia as we shift from STEM-to-STE(A)M active learning environments. Visualise, plan and design STEAM frameworks suitable to use in your classrooms (K-12). Form collaborative networking groups with other like-minded colleagues to activate your imagination and building the next generation of 21st century thinkers.
Outcomes:
• Learn how to teach and evaluate STEAM strategies that integrate ACARA’s (2014), General Capabilities of critical and creative thinking skills across the Australian Curriculum.
• Develop a personalised STEM-to-STE(A)M framework for the students in your classrooms.
• Collaboratively build networks with like-minded STEAM thinkers spaning across early childhood, primary, secondary education as well as industry and tertiary sectors.
