Are you ready for another STEAM related Creative Challenge? In an ongoing effort to curate content related to the disciplines involved in STEAM, we are pleased to announce the Arts & Design Creative Challenge. This Creative Challenge helps us demonstrate amazing ways to use ThingLink by encouraging members of our EDU community to create, share and curate with ThingLink. As a bonus, the winner of this Creative Challenge will receive 3 ThingLink EDU Premium accounts for teachers at your school!
What is STEAM?
STEAM is an approach to teaching that supports arts integration across the curriculum. In a STEAM classroom teachers design learning experiences that encourage students to engage in a creative process that connects an art form to one or more core subject areas, such as Science, Engineering, Technology or Math to meet objectives in all areas. ThingLink is the perfect tool to support STEAM powered learning because every ThingLink starts with an image.
Create a ThingLink for the Arts and Design Challenge
We encourage participants to think outside of the box when creating and sharing a ThingLink for this challenge. Here are 3 ideas to get you started.
Launch a Study of a Famous Artist or Designer
Design a Project on STEAM and Arts Integration.
Get Creative and Tell a story About Design
Take the Arts & Design Creative Challenge
