There are various descriptions of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education around the world. In the USA it includes the fields of Chemistry, Computer and Information Technology Science, Engineering, Geosciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physics, and STEM Education and Learning Research. Partly differences in what is included in STEM arise due to different views of technology and the levels of integration of the subjects as they are combined or not, in curricula design. In the international arena, technology tends to be synonymous with ICT. In New Zealand, we have a separate subject domain called technology that includes design for innovation through technological practice, knowledge, and understanding about the nature of technology. Effective communication, including the use of information technology, collaboration, problem-solving, creative and critical thinking skills are fundamental to STEM.
