STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking.
- STEAM is an integrated approach to learning which requires an intentional connection between standards, assessments and lesson design/implementation.
- Inquiry, collaboration, and an emphasis on process-based learning are the heart of the STEAM approach.
- Utilizing and leveraging the integrity of the arts themselves is essential to an authentic STEAM initiative.
At Wiley, STEAM is applied through Habits of Work, Integrated Content, Inquiry-Based Learning and Experiential Learning. The Design Process is at the heart of all we do- Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve, Ask.
