Reform of STEM Education Requires A Systems Approach



Some subscribers to ARN-L might be interested in a recent discussion-list post "Reform of STEM Education Requires A Systems Approach" [Hake (2012)]. The abstract reads:

*******************************************
ABSTRACT: Lees Stuntz (2012), executive director of "Creative Learning Exchange" <http://clexchange.org/> called attention to an AAAS News Release "Systemic School Reform Necessary for Science Education Improvements" at <http://bit.ly/xNfuW0>. The release indicated that improving education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) would require a new SYSTEMS APPROACH that "views education as part of a larger, more complex enterprise that reaches far beyond the classroom." To dig deeper on "systems thinking" see e.g.: "Over Two-Hundred Annotated References on Systems Thinking," at <http://bit.ly/9gZdXU> and "Books for Laypersons on Systems Thinking #2" at <http://bit.ly/npq5oy>.
