Participants will learn 5 fun, creative, and engaging projects which are featured in the new ISTE book STEAM Power: Infusing Art into Your STEM Curriculum. The lesson plans are available in the book/online and they address different methods of adding creativity and art into STEM learning. Participants will use free apps to learn how to use and implement technologies in: Augmented/Virtual Reality, Coding, Film, and Digital Photography. We will review the lesson plans which are featured in the book/online and they will learn how to assess the projects using the ISTE teacher/student standards. We will end the presentation with a brief reflection of what we learned, address the resources, and online assessment of the learning.
After a 10 minute overview of STEAM fundamentals and best practices participants will collaborate using free apps to create 5 projects (14 minutes each):
1. Create a work of art with code and AI
2. Draw in augmented/virtual reality
3. Design STEAM trading cards
4. Work on a collaborative drawing
5. Make a short video poem
In the last 10 minutes we will reflect and learn how to assess the projects using the ISTE standards, assess our own learning using an online resource, and end with a short contest using our devices.
The presentation is based specifically on the new ISTE book STEAM Power: Infusing Art into Your STEM Curriculum. Recognized experts such as Scratch creator Mitchel Resnick, technologist John Maeda, Professor Seymour Papert, and Sir Ken Robinson have all addressed the importance of creativity in education and the value of art in STEM learning.
