Scientific and technological developments change the society and the understanding of education. Today, individuals need to develop their 21st century skills. This can only be possible with interdisciplinary approaches such as STEM. Rather than preparing individuals for life, the STEM approach brings them the real world, so that individuals can develop creative, innovative and critical thinking, problem solving, interactive communication, cooperation, entrepreneurship and adaptation skills.
STEM is formed by combining the initials of the words Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM approach integrates these four disciplines. The traditional understanding is based on separation of disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics, on the other hand, STEM represents an understanding that envisages the integration of these disciplines.
This course will cover the history, philosophy, advantages and disadvantages of STEM education, effective use of digital tools in STEM, the ways creating inclusive and disabled friendly STEM course.
