ITEEA Teams Up With Four Other Associations on Digital Fabrication Article
Writers from ITEEA, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education, and the American Society for Engineering Educators have teamed up to write an article titled “Use of Digital Fabrication to Incorporate Engineering Design Principle in Elementary Mathematics Education” that is featured in the Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Journal.
The article is designed to show the collaboration of these five associations in teaching about and with technology in elementary mathematics instruction. The article was also directed at fostering STEM education, which is a fundamental challenge for education. President Obama (2009) recently addressed members of the National Academy of Sciences and called for an increased emphasis on hands-on learning to address this need when he said:
“I want to encourage young people to be makers of things, not just consumers of things.”
The President concluded that the future of the United States depends upon our ability to encourage young people to “create and build and invent.”

Redesigning Education: Building Schools for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
By Trung Le, Fri Jun 4, 2010
Not since the Soviets launched Sputnik into Earth's orbit in the 1960s has there been such urgency for America to redesign science and math education programs. Now, in the third millennium, the initiative takes the form of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. Research demonstrates that interest among American students in STEM subjects has greatly declined, a major issue, given that the STEM labor force is an indicator of a nation's ability to sustain itself. The new STEM initiative will launch with a bold mission: to reengage students in the joys of learning science and mathematics at all levels of education. Read more…

STEM Ed: Are We Beginning to See the Light?
A new snapshot of parent perceptions of STEM education was released last week following a survey conducted earlier this year by Public Agenda. While there's broad support from parents and the general public for K–12 national standards, more than half of parents (52%) say the math and science their child is getting in school is "fine as it is," contends Public Agenda in the survey report titled Are We Beginning to See the Light?
Survey results also indicate that the general public favors a “national curriculum” as one way of improving STEM education: 8 in 10 Americans say establishing a national curriculum in math would improve STEM education, with more than half (53%) saying it would improve it “a lot.” And 78% say the same about a national curriculum in science, with 48% saying it would improve it “a lot.”
Seventy percent of parents surveyed said they would also like to see their local schools spend more money on up-to-date and well-equipped science labs, more equipment for hands-on learning (69%), and more equipment to help students learn computer and technology skills (68%). The majority of parents with children in Grades 6–12 say they want to see more emphasis in their child’s school on STEM topics such as computer programming (65%), basic engineering principles (52%), and statistics and probability (49%).
While only 3 in 10 Americans see a demand for science and math-focused jobs in the current economy, 84% agree that there will be a lot more jobs in the future that require math and science skills. And 9 in 10 Americans say studying advanced math and science is useful even for students who don’t pursue a STEM career. Additionally, 88% of the public agrees that students with advanced math and science skills will have an advantage when it comes to college opportunities.

RPI Professor Receives $2.9 Million Grant to Support Innovative Approach to Teaching and Learning STEM Disciplines
Rising concern about America's ability to maintain its competitive position in the global economy has renewed interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. The challenge, according to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Science and Technology Studies Professor Ron Eglash, is that minority students are often disinterested in STEM academics because they do not see its relevance to their own lives and communities. To provide a solution, Eglash has received a five-year, $2.9 million National Science Foundation (NSF) research grant to support the development of "The Triple Helix" project that is dedicated to producing "civic scientists." The grant will fund up to eight graduate fellows from Rensselaer. They will focus on STEM research projects related to community-based issues. These issues include health, the environment, poverty, crime, and information access within the Capital Region.
This fall, six fellows from the School of Science and School of Engineering at Rensselaer and two from STS in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences will be placed in a collaborative teaching program with local middle schools serving low-income and minority communities in upstate New York. The grant also includes an international component, as Eglash, along with several of the fellows and Rensselaer faculty involved in the project, will travel to the field research site in Kumasi, Ghana, to see how their approach might be used in a Third World context. More details are at www.sts.rpi.edu.
• From eGFI News For Teachers
Posted on June 14th, 2010 by ASEE
Spurred by growing concerns that American students lack the skills to compete in a global economy, school districts nationwide are packing engineering lessons into already crowded schedules for even the youngest students, giving priority to a subject that was once left to after-school robotics clubs and summer camps, or else waited until college, the New York Times reports. Districts cited include Glen Rock, NY, Manassas, VA, and Anderson, SC. Congress is considering legislation, the Engineering Education for Innovation Act, that provides grants to help integrate engineering into curricula.
Supporters say that engineering reinforces math and science skills, promotes critical thinking and creativity, and teaches students not to be afraid of taking intellectual risks. But the Times article cites experts who caution that engineering can’t be a substitute for good teaching.
