About this Research Topic
Being so, it is justified to carry out more research on STEM approaches, such as, with pre-service teachers, in-service teachers and all levels of education. This research topic provides a stimulating and informative variety of research papers that expand and deepen our theoretical understanding on STEM innovations on teaching and learning.
Taking into account the demands of developing students for the 21st century skills, in this Research Topic we aim to collect high-quality studies focused on STEM model, related to pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, as well as students of all levels of education. We also intend to cover the largest variety of topics addressing this specific matter, that could help to foster STEM implementation in the classroom, to sharing STEM model education training experiences. Furthermore, we are interested in contributions that provide deepening insights into the challenges and opportunities involved in adopting STEM education in teaching and learning in a sustainable way.
Empirical or review studies, as well as all article types accepted by the STEM Education section of the journal Frontiers in Education, are welcome in this collection. In particular, contributions on STEM may include (but are not limited to) the following themes:
- innovation in STEM education;
- technology-enhanced learning in STEM education
- sustainable education
- online and digital learning
- pre-service teachers education;
- augmented reality and virtual learning
- high impact practices in STEM
- new methodologies to study STEM teaching
- applications of STEM model in training and/or research
- computational thinking
- critical thinking.
Out-of-the-box and interdisciplinary research approaches, theoretical insights, and empirical findings are welcome. All methodological approaches, including qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, systematic reviews and action research will be considered.
