2014 METC Session
When it comes to STEM, the whole is by far greater than the sum of its parts. Let's build a common understanding around the need for this inquiry-driven, connected framework of education. We'll observe STEM through the lens of the 21st century and see how educators are utilizing technology to collaborate and tackle their biggest challenges. And now that everything is digital, mobile, and social, we can start with ourselves as learners as well as leaders who model the rich, community-driven experiences that we want for our students.
