Recently, the development of new technologies such as Internet of Things, Big Data and Cloud Computing have promoted the intelligentization of many industries and deeply changed the way of human production and living styles. Last year, AlphaGo defeated the top level human experts of Go chess many times, marking the start of a new IT era, and here IT is not Information Technology but Intelligence Technology. The new challenge of the K-12 science education is to cultivate young students with advanced scientific literacy and help them to keep up the fast development under the Intelligent Technology era.
For the new IT era, we present a new science education framework with iStream multidisciplinary integration and iCDIOS comprehensive processes ideas for K-12 students. iStream and iCDIOS are natural extension of well-known STEM and CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, and Operate) programs, where i represents the new IT intelligent technology element for individual, inspiration, intelligence, invention, innovation, integration, interdisciplinary, international. Robotics, Research, Arts, Entrepreneurship, Management and Service are added and emphasized to provide comprehensive and systematic learning storylines from all dimensions.
This work is supported by many selected elementary and middle schools in Qingdao, a large coastal city with good educational background in China, and is also cooperated with educational equipment companies, normal universities, academic institutes, and local government. In this report, a brief review of our efforts on iStream and iCDIOS will be first presented, and then the corresponding science education framework, including vision, dimensions, ways, etc. will be introduced.
