STEAM is an international community of interdisciplinary educators, local and international administrators, and informal program representatives interested in educational research and practice across the spectrum of the subject areas. We are providing a dedicated space to collect those working from their expertise to connect to others and build a stronger global educational community of sharing practices.

The strand will have specialized sessions on how Technology/Engineering/STEM can provide the “what and how” to the contextual “who and why” of the fields of the Arts—as integrated with the subjects of Design, Society, Language, Music, and Physical Education. The strand will include workshops, practicum ideas, round-table discussions and panels.


The STEAM strand sessions at the ITEEA Annual Conference can be attended by all conference participants. No separate registration is required.
