The timely and engaging book, Connecting Students to STEM Careers: Social Networking Strategies, identifies effective and affordable ways school administrators can implement needed reforms and prepare 21st century learners for success in school and beyond. Author Camille Cole explains ways of incorporating the latest educational technology and social media, including Web 2.0 tools, in the curriculum to expose students to, and foster interest in, careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

With the tightening of school budgets, students rarely are taken on class trips to places such as museums and regional science centers that might spark their passion or introduce them to potential role models or mentors in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.  Yet with the proliferation of social media and collaboration technologies, meaningful, hands-on learning experiences can be brought right into the classroom and students can interact with and learn from top professionals in the field without leaving school grounds.

Connecting Students to STEM Careers: Social Networking Strategies takes readers inside real classrooms to discover ways schools are currently implementing innovative projects that connect students to real-world professionals.  These examples, along with resource lists and tools provided in the book, will help administrators identify ways they can harness technological tools and networks in their own schools to provide opportunities for students to pursue their talents in science, technology, engineering and math, and promote interest in STEM-related careers.

 Chapters in this ground-breaking book include:

  • Career Awareness
  • Interviews with STEM professionals
  • Partnerships for Learning
  • Extending Career Options for Rural Students
  • Web 2.0 Resources

America needs more students going into STEM careers. The strategies in Connecting Students to STEM Careers will help school administrators advance that trend.
