Daily Republic: Teachers gain 21st-century skills at STEM

FAIRFIELD — In a meeting room at the Solano County Office of Education, middle school teachers contemplated the use of cell phones in the classroom.

While to this day, the use of cell phones and other electronics have largely been forbade in an educational setting, educators reconsidered this notion at the county’s first-ever Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) instructional series for teachers.

The week-long workshop trained middle-school and elementary-school teachers in what program manager Geoff Belleau called “21st-century learning.”

Belleau believes that using 21st-century technology to educate and engage students today is necessary to successfully prepare them for graduation and future employment.
