STEM Learning- A Team Approach
This video highlights the approach of Watertown City School District's STEAM Team, which includes educators, students, and community members focused on supporting STEM learning opportunities for students. Thanks to the support of the DoDEA MCASP Grants Program, WCSD has built a culture focused on STEM learning that engages educators as learners alongside students to ensure that students have rich, transdisciplinary learning opportunities to future proof our students with essential skills, knowledge, and habits that support their future success.
Impactful professional learning experiences are active, engaging, collaborative, and connected to standards, community resources and needs, and workforce opportunities. We have also learned that our educators learn best alongside students in informal learning settings, which allow for skills to be developed and for new approaches and technologies to be tested in a relaxed setting, providing essential time for exploration and reflective thought.
