Department: Master of Education
Module Description: This module is planned to recognize the interdisciplinary connections among the science, math, and technology. It discusses the union of science, mathematics, and technology that forms the scientific endeavour and that makes it so successful. A major emphasis is placed on STEM and STEAM education. The module examines the parallel but separate development of math, science and technology, their differences and their connectedness. The impact of this interdisciplinary nature on K-12 student learning, curricular and education policies and reforms for 21st century will be addressed where appropriate.
