>Dear readers and colleagues,
>ÐAs the STEAM educational movement gains
>momentum, the conversation around what STEAM is,
>what it can do, and what it is already doing is
>actively taking shape. STEAM
>emphasizes an integrated and holistic approach
>to learning. STEAM has become popularized for
>many reasons near and dear to us at SciArt, such
>the <>documented
>benefits of arts-based learning on general
>creative capacity and the increasing desire to
>break free from the disciplinary silo system
>which many find tiresome and outdated. But like
>the start of anything new, STEAM education lacks
>a rubric, guidelines, or standards for educators
>to follow and be inspired by. Only through a
>collecting of current STEAM approaches can we
>correctly and coherently analyze this
>educational movement for its benefits and its
>weak spots, and push beyond the buzz-word phase
>we currently find ourselves in. Such an analysis
>is important if STEAM is ever to to be packaged
>and integrated into our educational system in a
>widespread manner. STEAM is easy to talk about
>but still hard to do.
>The August issue of SciArt will be dedicated to
>publishing the varied approaches that STEAM
>educators are taking - from theory to case
