What’s Next for STEM Education? Boosting Teachers and Teaching

01:00 pm - 03/16/2017

There is a national consensus that today’s students need more opportunities to build skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across the PreK-12 grade span. Teachers are a critical piece for providing those opportunities, but barriers abound. How are teachers recruited? How are they trained? Should education schools approach preparation differently? And what about educators in the early grades, kindergarten, and pre-K? What stands in the way of enabling high-quality STEM teaching and learning experiences for young children?

Join AIR, New America, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, and 100Kin10 for a wide-ranging discussion of the ideas emerging from STEM initiatives and two recent reports—"STEM Starts Early: Grounding Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Education in Early Childhood" and "Can UTeach? Assessing the Relative Effectiveness of STEM Teachers" —and what they mean for policymaking at the local, state and federal levels.
