STEM – New Plan on its way

STEM report logoTowards a STEM Education Policy Statement and Implementation Plan for Schools

The Department of Education and Skills are currently developing a STEM Education Policy Statement and Implementation Plan for Schools. The Department’s work in this area is being informed by the STEM Education in the Irish School System report.

The report contains 47 suggested actions that the Department should undertake to enhance the STEM learning in schools. One chapter of the report focuses on the role digital technology can play in the promotion of STEM learning.

The Department has been engaged in a series of ongoing consultations in recent weeks with young people, teachers, parents and key education stakeholders around the actions contained in the STEM Education in the Irish School System. In addition, they have an online consultation survey that focuses on a set of the key actions. This consultation will close today, June 15th, but if you have time visit the Department’s webpage to share your views on these actions and on how STEM education can be enhanced in the future.

    We are selling an e-book and teachers resource which is along the lines of this. It’s not got the meta-data component (storing pointer position, times spent on pages, etc.) but it is a great digital resource which can be used in conjunction with well-known popular graphing apps and regular chalk and talk. Full details search “” or follow us on twitter @lcertmathsnotes

    Hi! This is a nice post. STEM education is the future of the education which helps in developing coding skills in the students. This is really helpful for schools who have initiated in implementing the STEM curriculum in the schools at elementary level. You should also check from CoderZ as another good resource of STEM and Robotic curriculum in schools.
