Memorization is what we resort to when what we are learning makes no sense. — Anonymous
If you are receiving this blog then you probably work in STEM Education. Recently, a friend of mine at the KIPP STEM School in Houston introduced me to a new acronym coined by Dr. Kenneth Wesson. His presentation for the International Center for Leadership in Education includes his new acronym– S.T2.R.E.A.M. ST2REAM stands for Science, Technology & Thematic Interdisciplinary Instruction for Student Learning, Reading/Language Arts, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. (I’m not sure what happened to social studies :-).
Anyway, Dr. Wesson’s power point has some really interesting material. Be sure and view slide #17 for the Rand Corporations Futuristic View of a home computer. Not sure the circa of this prediction, but LOL!
