Online Journals for STEM Educators

STEM resources just got a very powerful addition as the National Science Teachers Association and Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) have joined forces to produce an online journal for STEM educators.

“The journal bridges in-school and out-of-school STEM learning and showcases highly effective programs, practices, collaborations, and research taking place between these two learning communities,” according to a recent press release.

“Educators can sign up here to receive the free journal.”

The journal is said to contain information regarding both in-school and out-of-school ways in which STEM educators can take advantage of various opportunities available to them.

“This first-of-its-kind journal will inspire and inform a wide range of educators, whether they are in the K–12 science classroom, running an after-school program, or leading education efforts at a museum or technology center,” said David Evans, NSTA Executive Director, according to the release.

The journal will also be a showcase of shared goals and passions that educators in science centers and museums share, while highlighting STEM programs in various states nationwide.

“The new journal is produced in partnership with NSTA and ASTC, with pilot funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF),” according to the release.

“Issue two of Connected Science Learning focusing on professional development will be released in fall 2016. Pilot funding will underwrite the first two free issues.”

This is a prime example of how companies and organizations can pool their resources in order to help educators learn and grow in ways that benefit students. The STEM movement is without a doubt the future of education, and the journals will hopefully be an aid to educators who want to give their students such opportunities.

The journal seems like it'll end up a quarterly publication, but the organizations have not yet stated officially how often they plan to release them.
