We start off this week by discussing the tech gifts we received for Christmas.
We then get into a lengthy discussion of STEM to STEAM, which is an initiative to add the arts to the heart of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Great companies like Apple have been successful because they have been able to combine the arts and the humanities with technology. The arts are also important to learning. If you care about education, STEM and the arts, this is the show for you.
This is a great video on RISD’s STEM to STEAM initiative that recognizes that technology and art are interdependent. RISD President John Maeda talks about the necessity of combining art and design with science, technology, engineering and math.
