The education sector has to cope with the shifting contour of the global economic landscape. Because industries are highly technology-driven, and humans are at the brink of being replaced by machines, new set of skills are required from the human workforce. Higher education institutions (HEIs) need to nurture graduates who demonstrate skills that machines are not capable of. Because most innovations emerge from Science, Technology, Engineering, Agri-Fisheries, and Mathematics (STEAM) disciplines, STEAM education needs to be reinvented. This article proposes a framework to reengineer the Philippine STEAM learning ecosystem, inspired by the recently developed Philippine Pedagogical Model of STEAM Education. The proposed framework was developed as a recommendation to the Philippine government on how the current paradigm and practices of STEAM education in the country can be further improved. The proposed framework features a skills-based learning architecture where competencies are mapped primarily from industry requirements and global trends. The proposed framework specifically implies venturing into non-conventional learning modalities to uphold efficient and effective development of emerging and future skills requirements of the labor market, thereby increasing its productivity and innovation indices.
