Presentation proposals for the annual California STEAM Symposium in Long Beach are due on June 20th, 2018. This year the conference will be held from October 28 to October 29. Partnering with a local education agency is optimal for our commercial partners in order to avoid being considered a vendor. The following conference strand recognizes the importance of school facilities in STEM and STEAM learning:
Essential Conditions for 21st-Century STEAM Teaching and Learning: Innovative learning environments promote inquiry and facilitate collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity to help meet the needs of a variety of learners. STEAM learning environments that are student-centered require flexibility and accessibility for various types of learning, including project-based and Social-Emotional Learning, outdoor learning, modernized technology, and personalized instruction. Educators can support our diverse student population to succeed by designing instruction to foster a positive classroom environment where all learners are engaged and able to express what they know. Hear educators and facilities professionals share promising practices that cultivate success through their physical and conceptual structures.
