Strategies to Incorporate STEM in TVET Education

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-16-1-1

The buzz word in education today is “STEM”, especially in TVET circles where it appears to be critical in the development of technical minds. It has been argued that “STEM Education atempts to transform the typical teacher-centred classroom by encouraging a curriculum that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and requires students to actively engage a situation in order to find its solution” (Fioriello, 2011).

Creating a STEM-based Economic Pillar for the Caribbean: A Blueprint

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1801

Caribbean countries need to work their way out of debt. Most Caribbean economies continue to rely on tourism. In a few countries, oil and natural gas underpin the economy. The financial services industry, which had helped to bolster some of these economies, has shrunk in recent years. Graduates with engineering degrees continue to have severe challenges in finding employment in their field within the Caribbean region. This human resource, for the most part, is wasted.

Evaluation of the Performance of STEM Academies in Jamaica: Using Data to Inform Decision-making

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1801

Over the last 40 years, there have been numerous changes in the Jamaican education system at both the primary and secondary levels. In 2015, there was the introduction of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum to meet the changing needs of industry. In order for policymakers to be able to evaluate the impact of this STEM-based programme, it is vital that the current landscape be surveyed to provide critical baseline data.

The Relationship Between Grade 9 Students’ Attitudes to STEM and Their Achievement in Integrated Science

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1801

This study investigated Grade 9 students’ attitudes towards science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and the extent to which their attitudes impacted on their academic achievement in Integrated Science. An adapted Students’ Attitudes Towards STEM instrument (Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, 2012) was piloted on 67 high school students in Jamaica and yielded a Cronbach alpha value of 0.821. It was then administered to 259 Grade 9 students from four high schools.

An Exploratory Study of Game-Based Approaches in Primary Mathematics and Science Classrooms in Trinidad and Tobago

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1801

In Trinidad & Tobago, game-based approaches are pedagogies encouraged in the core STEM disciplines of mathematics and science. This paper presents the results of a pilot study in  which non-digital game based approaches were implemented in Grade 6 mathematics and science classrooms in Trinidad. In mathematics, reinforcement of 2D and 3D concepts in geometry took place through Gamification involving team competitions creating Tangrams and Origami. In science, student teams reinforced concepts of  conservation through the board game Extinction.
