From James Wells, Innovative Teaching and Learning Manager, Crayola Education –
Crayola will be hosting a free webinar on STEAM & Project-Based Learning: Educators and Students Get Future-Ready. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Register for this webinar today.
Do you know any 21st-century jobs that require us to simply listen and memorize? Future opportunities for students will demand new skills. If you think about how engineers, designers, scientists, technology developers, and artists work together to solve real-world problems and create opportunities, you’re thinking “future-ready.”
This webinar will look at the intersection of STEAM and project-based learning. We’ll explore how the standards of multiple disciplines connect to strengthen cross-curricular learning. We’ll investigate the processes of inquiry and problem-solving. You’ll learn about successes in fostering “the four C’s” and opening the door for student voice and agency. Our educator panel will showcase their classroom-tested approaches to creativity, design thinking, and the four integrated steps of IDEA: identify, define, explore, and assess. The creative economy is the future. Prepare your students to thrive.
