STEM education is “an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009)
Not coincidentally, several other trends in learning–from mobile learning and tablets in the classroom, to personalized learning and adaptive learning apps–are all at least somewhat connected to STEM education, which makes the following collection of STEM iPad apps for learning from Listly user Randy Yerrick helpful.
The list is impressively diverse, from communication tools (Skype) to social readers (Flipboard), to composition tools (Pages) to graphing calculators (Quick Graph). Definitely worth a pin, tweet, or pluck of your own to your favorite digital hoarding tool.
