Symposium Promotes Technological Literacy through STEM
Havice, Bill; Marshall, Jerry
Technology Teacher, v68 n6 p27-29 Mar 2009
This article describes a symposium which promotes technological literacy through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The three-day symposium titled, "The Anderson, Oconee, Pickens Symposium on Teaching and Learning STEM Standards for the 21st Century," was held August 4-6, 2008 at the Tri-County Technical College (TCTC) Anderson, South Carolina campus. The symposium provided an opportunity to unite teachers and administrators from K-12, Clemson University, and TCTC, in the Upstate of South Carolina, to collaborate and communicate at all levels of STEM education. One of the symposium goals was to develop ways to integrate technological literacy into the K-16 curricula--promote ways of integrating technology and engineering that will encourage more local students to choose STEM careers. Another goal was to expand communication among groups vertically. Individually, STEM activities have been created and are successful; however, through collaboration much more can be accomplished.
