Taking iSTEM+ forward
The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists WCIT has endorsed, and is now helping diseminate, the iSTEM+ approach. It is proposing a twin track vehicle with an informal ground-based user community through the iSTEMPlus.org site (under development) and a Technology-enhanced STEM Learning Alliance (TeSLA) between organisations and employers keen to support schools to better prepare today's learners for the world of tomorrow. A draft paper is here, and more information will be added. We are now working with the parliamentary Digital Policy Alliance DPA on a pilot scheme to develop a network of Schools STEM Skills Hubs in strategic towns and cities.
