For STEAM Education, parents need only read this article!
According to authoritative data reports, we find that the concept of STEAM education, which aims to develop diverse talents, is widely accepted. Although the STEAM education concept is becoming more and more popular in some big cities, many parents still don't know much about it, or have a little understanding of it.
The origin and development of STEAM education
STEM education that see the earliest of the national science foundation in 1986, the university of science, math, engineering, education report and the report for the first time put forward "science, technology, engineering, mathematics education guiding Suggestions, in order to cope with the international talent competition and economic development under the pressure of the reflection of its personnel training, aims to cultivate children's comprehensive quality, To enhance its global competitiveness.
It was during the war between the United States and the Soviet Union (1947-1991). Against this background, the American government reflected on the overall problems existing in the postwar education system, and therefore put special emphasis on education in the fields of science, mathematics, engineering and technology.
When Bill Clinton was president of the United States (1993-2001), he repeatedly expressed his emphasis on STEM education in his public speeches. The promotion of government policies has led to a general understanding among Americans that a country's overall strength depends on its innovation ability, which in turn depends on the innovation level of the new labor force, which refers to people from kindergarten to college age. Whether the new labor force has the ability and level of innovation depends on the country's education level in science (S), technology (T), engineering (E) and mathematics (M). Successive U.S. administrations have since expressed support for STEM education without exception.
In 2006, Georgette Yakman of Virginia Tech university proposed that adding Arts to STEM education would help students understand the connections between different disciplines from more perspectives and improve their ability to use knowledge to solve practical problems. As a result, STEAM education is now more commonly mentioned. (New STREAM education, added R: Reading and writing)
STEAM education is a comprehensive education that integrates science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
The government has begun to promote happy teaching in kindergartens and primary schools to reduce the burden of teaching. Many primary school students are also under less pressure, and primary school children can spend more time "playing with technology". The school can arrange student activities during after-school hours from 15:30 to 17:00, Monday to Friday, not less than 3 days a week, not less than 1 hour a day. Through the program of extracurricular activities, primary and secondary school students will gradually master at least two sports skills, and their interest and accomplishment in sports, art, science and technology will be further cultivated.
