Thank you Kate Smith for sending these links!

During the last couple of years I have included many posts on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). Recently Central Elementary School (South Berwick) music teacher Kate Smith sent me a couple more links to articles on the topics. This time not only has the article provide “food for thought” but many links to good articles and resources. If you are interested in this topic I suggest that you read the post on currikublog written by Janet Pinto, Chief Academic Officer, Curriki on November6, 2012, but I suggest that you also follow and read the links and comments included.

And, Kate also sent a link to cybraryman who also includes several good links and resources to STEAM ideas. Check out the left column.

If you are looking for tips or ideas on how to communicate about this idea. Or perhaps you are searching for articles or information on what this is all about and does it make any sense to promote it, I am certain these resources will help you find answers.

At this point there are several posts on STEM/STEAM on meartsed blog. To find them just put the words “STEM STEAM” into the “search archives” box on the bottom right hand side of the blogs front page and you will see all of the posts.

John Maeda presented a TED talk called How art, technology, and design inform creative thinkers. John Maeda is the President of the Rhode Island School of Design. His life work has included art, design and technology. He is dedicated to communicating about the link between design and technology and he does it in his TED talk in a very engaging way.

John Maeda wrote an article called If Design’s No Longer the Killer Differentiator, What Is? for Wired Magazine that was published September 9, 2012. The article includes Mr. Maeda’s history which provides an overview of his beliefs and how he arrived at them.
