The creative power of Digital STEAM

Gaming, texting, and browsing in class... happens all the time, even to the best teachers. Secondary students often seem more interested in mastering the latest technology than in covering the basics of the arts, math, and science. But today's Digital STEAM Workshop helps you stay a step ahead of your students. Instead of interrupting classroom learning, digital media will become your ally in real-world design challenges that capture students' attention - and support Common Core education in language arts and mathematics and Next Generation Science education.
