Given a growing interest in schools addressing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), the CITME is assisting music educators integrate STEM into music education and music education into STEM or STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). A key aspect of this work is combining musicianship, musical understanding, and musical learning with principles and core concepts related to STEM ranging from physics to computational thinking. This work is taking place in music education courses at ASU and is starting to occur in local schools with music educators partnering with the CITME. Contact us if you are interested in partnering with the CITME to address STEM, STEAM, and music education in your school.
Music and Media Arts Maker Culture
With the support of a HIDA Seed Grant, we are currently developing a music and media arts maker space to foster collaboration between digital culture and music education students. During the second phase of this project we will partner with music and media arts educators as well as community organizations to support music and media arts maker spaces. As part of the project we are researching and developing related arts, STEM, and STEAM pedagogy and curriculum. A key aspect of the project is a focus on artistic inquiry and engagement.
