Journal of the Center of Excellence




ISSUE № 3 (45)

The presented issue of the journal “Pedagogical Dialogue” is devoted to STEM/STEAM education, which promotes the development of students’ creative, imaginative and scientific thinking. The content reflects the key ideas of STEAM education aimed at overcoming the detachment of traditional education from the solution of practical problems and building links between academic disciplines that are understandable to students.

The authors study the issues in the context of the STEAM concept: natural sciences + technology based on mathematical elements and interpreted through art and engineering practices.

How can this interdisciplinary approach be applied at school and embodied in concrete projects? Kazakhstani and foreign scholars and experts from Australia, Azerbaijan, Sweden, USA, UAE and Vietnam shared their ideas. Much attention was paid to the questions: what is the power of STEAM? What makes teaching practice successful? What opportunities does STEM provide for students? How to teach students through art and design? What are the conditions for developing teachers’ STEAM competencies?
