About the event
Join STEMteachersPHX and STEAM Instructor John Carlo Tuliano for a session on integrating music, engineering, and culturally responsive teaching. John Carlo encourages even the youngest students to engage with the Engineering Design Process to solve real world problems in a way that explores culture, materials, and how objects are used in communities.
This session will focus on utilizing cultural concepts and practices around the world in designing a STEAM lesson. The session will discuss ways on how to advocate, promote, and foster cultural empathy and responsibility within the STEAM classroom through exploring various cultural practices and artifacts. The discussions will help teachers build an understanding of resources/materials that can be used to create instruments, materials and artifacts based on foreign cultures.
John Carlo is a STEAM Music Academy Teacher in the Pendergast Elementary School District and doctoral candidate in Applied Learning Science (University of Miami). The innovative STEAM program he developed for his elementary students is what led him to become a 2021 Shell Urban Science Teacher Development awardee by the National Science Teacher Association. Before coming to the US, John Carlo worked with the Philppines Department of Education as a curriculum researcher, writer, and editor for books in Music, Arts, and Physical Education. As a researcher, he traveled all over the country, gathering data and using it to re-design and enhance the department's current curriculum and learning designs.
