This subject aims to equip students with content and pedagogical content knowledge in integrated STEM education through the context of digital storytelling. Students will engage in knowledge construction, innovative design and computational thinking to creatively communicate STEM concepts related to an issue that they are passionate about. In so doing they will make explicit links to the science, mathematics and technologies curricula. Pedagogical content knowledge will be developed by students through consideration regarding how they would adopt this approach in their future classroom by creating learning-experience implementation plans linked to STEM aspects of the curriculum and appropriate to their degree (i.e. ECE, Primary or Secondary).
