STEM 2026: A vision for Innovation in Education (pdf) is a new report available on the AIR site.

From page 1: “The complexities of today’s world require all people to be equipped with a new set of core knowledge and skills to solve difficult problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information they receive from varied print and, increasingly, digital media. The learning and doing of STEM helps develop these skills and prepare students for a workforce where success results not just from what one knows, but what one is able to do with that knowledge. Thus, a strong STEM education is becoming increasingly recognized as a key driver of opportunity, and data show the need for STEM knowledge and skills will grow and continue into the future. ”

From page 44:   STEM 2026 presents an aspirational vision for STEM teaching and learning that promotes such sustained engagement, imbuing all students and their surrounding communities with a belief that they can better their own lives and others through STEM. This vision, which developed out of a series of dynamic discussions among expert thought leaders and innovators in STEM education, comprises six interconnected core components:

  • Engaged and networked communities of practice
  • Accessible learning activities that invite intentional play and risk
  • Educational experiences that include interdisciplinary approaches to solving “grand challenges”
  • Flexible and inclusive learning spaces
  • Innovative and accessible measures of learning
  • Societal and cultural images and environments that promote diversity and opportunity in STEM
