Online Learning for STEM Subjects : International Examples of Technologies and Pedagogies in Use
about this item
The Global Collaboration initiatives related in this book are examples of how educators have experimented with different mechanisms to provide science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programmes through information and communication technologies. In many cases, these programmes have looked at the allied personal communication and collaboration skills that students of these subjects also need; the so-called "STEM+" curriculum.
In particular, these approaches to STEM+ provision show how the internationalization of education can be made more effective and accessible through the exploitation of collaborative technologies and non-traditional pedagogies. The approaches address the following themes:
- Technologies for distance learning and collaboration
- Pedagogies for online learning
- Remote communication and collaboration
A global perspective is made possible within the book through the inclusion of authors from North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. These authors were brought together through the Hewlett Packard Catalyst programme, which ran from 2010 to 2013.
