Broadening Access and Participation in STEM Education through Technology: Promises and Challenges

Description: We are facing a crisis in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and competency, both in the U.S. and internationally. Dramatic inequalities in STEM education are evident in the significant and persistent achievement gaps that exist among schools, with students from minority and impoverished schools displaying lower STEM proficiency. Furthermore, this achievement gap parallels a large and growing disparity in access to opportunity and resources that is leaving millions of students worldwide with little or no access to quality STEM education. At the same time, our current educational system is in a period of disruption, with new educational technologies and paradigms such as MOOCs and online education, mobile technologies and app culture, serious games, and maker culture being introduced at a breakneck pace. Could these disruptions offer a path to meaningful change in our educational system? Could they be leveraged to increase access to educational opportunities for underrepresented students? On Wednesday 21 August 2013, the MaDTECHEd* affinity group of the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowship will host a one-day symposium to examine how we can leverage disruptive technologies to broaden access and participation in STEM education and improve outcomes for all learners. Panelists from K-12 schools, community colleges, four-year undergraduate institutions, the education industry, nonprofit organizations, and the government will come together to discuss best practices in four areas of educational technology – online education and MOOCs, mobile technologies and app culture, gamification and serious games, and maker culture – and to consider strategies to improve STEM education through the use of these technologies.
