About

The Master of Arts program in Elementary Education: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at the Hofstra University is designed for experienced elementary school teachers who seek the skills, knowledge, and dispositions to integrate the teaching of these areas. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • Technology is defined as information technology, the integration of skills that require the use of computer applications to enhance student learning of mathematics and science as well as design technology, which encompasses the study of the technological world that inventors, engineers and other innovators have created.

Integration of these areas occurs within a broader understanding of the way in which society both reflects and shapes curriculum and pedagogy in schools.
