Technologies in Science Education

Technology is an artifact that should not be singled out but rather integrated with content and with pedagogy. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) broadly include the disciplines addressed in this entry. Integrating technology into science, engineering, and mathematics can make these disciplines exciting and innovatively transformative. Although many technologies are used in science education, this entry focuses on those that are currently important and those that are emerging and likely to become important in the near future. The entry first discusses the use of serious educational games, simulations, and alternate reality. It then discusses the use of next-generation technologies such as robotics, three-dimensional (3D) printing, haptic and biological feedback devices, and holograms.
