Global STEM Classroom Collaboration Technology and 21st century skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will be presented by GTEC international team and the US school administrators, teachers and students. We will explore what really works and what does not from the perspective of the students and the teachers. The effectiveness of the existing web-based collaboration tools for a virtual community, student teamwork in STEM education and the acquisition of 21st century skills and mapping of the GTEC STEM programs to the National Standards will be discussed. We will provide  recommendations for the US and international educational community on the applicability of these tools for educational collaborative projects - both from the students’ and the teachers’ perspectives. We will discuss the opportunities that virtual labs provide for developing global STEM teamwork classroom programs and offer examples of professional collaborative tools.  We will also review the perspective of STEM employment & workforce development professionals (re: STEM skills & workforce readiness). The participants of innovative and rigorous Global STEM program will share their experience in joint international projects implemented under the GTEC umbrella. 8th and 9th graders of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School worked with schools in UK, France and Russia on various GTEC STEM projects such as NASA space exploration, astronomy investigations, world-wide clean water research, and methods of data visualization and etc.
