Until recently, when the term STEM was used, one would have to define the meaning of the acronym and recount its emergence and evolution in varying depths; it is now a commonly used term in the educational field. Much research has been carried out regarding STEM since its inception, and it no longer needs to be defined or presented. Although the term is well known, methods of planning and evaluating designs under the STEM educational approach are not. A consensus has not been reached regarding what a didactic proposal must be to be considered STEM, and little research has been carried out on the benefits that these can have for students.
Much remains to be done, as it is expected that this educational approach will continue to be the norm for some time. Hence, it is advantageous to include it in teacher training and continue to investigate its design and impact on learning. This is why we invite you to publish your research in this Special Issue, dedicated to STEM education.
Manuscripts with the following approaches are welcome:
- Papers, theoretical or empirical, that advance the development of the STEM education approach.
- Systematic reviews that bring together knowledge gained regarding specific issues related to the STEM education model.
- Educational innovations focused on STEM education with a rigorous evaluation of their impact on student learning.
- Didactic proposals based on STEM education oriented to teacher training, which have been implemented and have produced reliable learning outcomes.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
