Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) education is a methodological perspective of teaching that seeks a unitary, integrated and lasting learning of scientific–technical concepts. It is a broad spectrum of methodological approaches framed within the currents of meaningful teaching of science and technology at all educational levels. In the future, the learning generated by this methodology will have a positive impact on the shaping of societies, from the point of view of their industrialization, the technological literacy of the people or their perspective on sustainable development.

This Special Issue is open to submissions of original research articles, literature reviews or conceptual papers, subject to rigorous peer review, covering the design and application of training actions in the field of STEAM methodology and the analysis of their social impacts, as well as studies aimed at analyzing the influence of sociological aspects in the implementation of STEM learning. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Knowledge and assessment of STEAM methodology by students or teachers of different educational stages.
  • Implementation of training actions in the STEAM field.
  • STEAM methodology and training effectiveness in science and technology.
  • Social impact of STEAM university degrees.
  • Gender gap in STEAM education and professionals.
  • Programs for the social diffusion of scientific–technical knowledge.
  • STEAM and scientific literacy of societies.
  • Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through STEAM
