PD Key To Stem Funding
From the 2010 Survey of
science and STEM leaders
conducted by IESD, Inc., in
collaboration with STEM market
expert Daylene Long:
1. Professional development
(PD) was a funding priority for most
STEM leaders and was perceived currently
to be insufficient.
2. A majority of respondents projected
an increase in technology-delivered
STEM PD and a decrease in faceto-
face STEM PD.
3. STEM leaders wanted technology tools
that would support hands-on science.
4. Most STEM leaders thought
that simulation software
should be used in conjunction
with hands-on activities
rather than instead of such
5. A majority of STEM educators
thought it was somewhat or very
unlikely that eBook readers would be
widely adopted in the next five years.
