Considerations from Places Where Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing, Being, and Doing Circulate Together: STEM as Artifact of Teaching and Learning
Borden, Lisa Lunney; Wiseman, Dawn
Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, v16 n2 p140-152 2016
The editors have challenged us to consider STEM within the Canadian educational context. We find that the push to STEM is based on stories that frame the need for STEM within an economic imperative. Though some people are questioning the prevailing story and attempting to tell stories about STEM as a more integrated approach to teaching and learning, this work remains based in Western assumptions and philosophies. Based on our work alongside Aboriginal people, peoples, and communities, we offer another take on STEM, not as a framework for teaching and learning but rather as an artifact that emerges from teaching and learning.
