  • This study has investigated concerns of elementary school teachers on STEAM education that is main stream of science-technology education in Korea nowadays. Emphasis on STEAM education of Ministry of education that is new policy about science-technology-refinement education for future led to teachers implement STEAM education on the field of education since 2011. The purpose of this study is to check current degree of concerns of elementary school teachers for STEAM education and explore effective ways to improve concerns of teachers about it. From this study we checked and diagnosed conditions of teachers' concerns on the current STEAM education in Korea. Through this work we found degree of teachers' concerns on the current STEAM education is very low and they are undergoing trial and error recently because of deficiency of understanding on STEAM education and insufficient time to design it and so on.

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the perception about STEAM education of primary teachers who have developed and applied STEAM education to their students through teacher training program. For this study, 101 among 172 attendance are responded to questionnaire of three categories consisting of development and application teaching material for STEAM instruction, and spreading STEAM education. The major findings are as follows: First, when primary teachers develop materials for STEAM education, they consider applicabilities in real classes. Second, they feel the burden of time when they develop STEAM material. Third, they think that their own program has significant educational effectiveness and that students enjoyed the program. Especially, they think that STEAM education program can raise students' interest about learning. Fourth, primary teachers point out the constraints for application of STEAM education program, which are lack of expertise and difficulty acquiring class time. Fifth, primary teachers evaluate the effect of STEAM education program on primary education is positive, and they answer that we need many teaching materials for STEAM education, operating as a regular curriculum, and securing budget. In order to spread STEAM education in field of primary education successfully, administrators have to consider and reflect the voice of teachers.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigation the elementary school teachers' perception in STEAM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Education. For this study, 93 elementary school teachers who have taught mathematics/science in gifted class were selected and a fifteen items questionnaire designed to elicit teachers' perception of steam education was to administered to them. The major findings are as follows: First, the ratio of teachers who understood a steam education exactly is very low. But teachers have positive thoughts about the need of steam education. Second, teachers thought that steam education has a good effect on elementary education. Third, teachers thought that steam education will be an alternative teaching and learning method. Fourth, teachers have negative thoughts to participate in class work related on steam education. To improve negative attitudes on steam education, incentives for teachers seems to be required. In order to spread steam education among the elementary school teachers successfully, the expansion of school facilities, administrators and staff in mind, improving financial support, strengthening education through the development of content and teaching strategies were analyzed as a challenge.

  • This study examined a difference in a change of understanding and recognition on STEAM Education before and after participating in STEAM Education of university students majoring in teaching profession of engineering system who took part in 'STEAM Education of being made together with undergraduates for 2016' as part of the project for a center of supporting STEAM pre-service teachers. As a result, the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system could be confirmed to have been improved the understanding and sympathy level with STEAM education as a whole following the execution of the program. Comparing it with other majoring system, the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system were shown to be a little low in pre-perception or satisfaction, but were indicated later to have high intention of participation in STEAM education. This suggests that the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system recognize the importance of STEAM education in the engineering education, but are feeling pressure about interpersonal communication. Accordingly, it is time that there is a need to have a system of officially providing the implementation of STEAM education and an opportunity of experience in the education for pre-service teachers aiming at the engineering education for future generation.

  • The purpose of this study is to analyze elementary school teachers' perception on application of STEAM education. For this study, a survey was administered to 80 primary teachers. The result showed as follows: First, even though, elementary school teachers have known about the meaning and aims of the STEAM education in detail, they often took a neutral attitude toward the actual teaching method. In addition, they take a negative attitude toward having the gathering. Second, only a few elementary school teachers prepared and used the teaching materials related to the STEAM education in class and teach students the concept based on the STEAM education. Only a few elementary school teachers said that they used the developed modules. However, the demand, developing the modules, was extremely high. This result means that the easy and available modules should be developed to establish the STEAM education. Third, only a few elementary school teachers applied the subject, activity, and estimation related to the STEAM education in actual class. Forth, even though, after applying, there much be the positive affects, most elementary school teachers could not recognize the positive affects. At the same time, elementary school teachers suggested the curriculum should be reorganized for students to connect between the results of the STEAM education and the contents of the textbook, and the easy and available program should be developed and spread, also. The attitude of elementary school teachers toward the application of the STEAM education was normally negative. Therefore, it is needed to include more STEAM related contents in the science textbooks and to develop various STEAM education materials and circulate them as well as to establish adequate teaching and assessment methods for STEAM education.

  • This study analyzes students' motivation for learning when applying SW-STEAM education using Flipped Learning. As a main content of the study, we developed a program that combines SW education with existing subjects and utilized flipped learning as a method. Elementary school students were given an education program. The data were collected through pre and post-test of learning motivation. As a result of analysis, the SW-STEAM program based on flipped learning has improved attention, relevance and confidence. We expect that the results of the SW-STEAM education program developed in this study and the learning motivation analysis will help in the direction of the SW-STEAM education and be useful as a basic resources for settling in class.
