Jacksonville Educators Speak at Global Summer STEAM Camp Conferences on Clubhouse Audio Platforms and Teaching at 5 Summer STEAM Camps  with Florida State
College and Libraries. 

William and Aida Jackson STEAM educators in Jacksonville, Florida have been honored to be selected to speak at “STEAM Camp A Global Conversation Conference” held virtually on the global Clubhouse platform. The new global audio platform “Clubhouse” is changing the way conferences

are held and how professional development is being provided.

Their works in teaching, advocating and providing free STEAM workshops in Jacksonville have been recognized and respected locally, nationally and globally. STEAM – Science Technology Engineering Arts Math are growing educational initiatives that are defining the learning foundations of youth, teens and young adults especially Black and Brown children in communities of poverty and under privileged status. African American, Hispanic, Mexican and other children of color are behind in many areas, proper training in areas of Technology, STEM, STEAM and STREAM

are key skills that youth need to be employable in the future.

The importance and influence of STEM, STEAM and STREAM Education that are influencing future careers integrates the skills and abilities that businesses are demanding and are looking for in the future workforce. The demand has grown more urgently as the pandemic is changing the social reliability on technology application and integration. Businesses are allowing their workers to stay at home to work remotely and need their workers to be tech savvy,

STEAM is one of the keys.

So influential is STEAM that schools are changing their curriculums to provide STEM, STEAM and STREAM Education. Globally the value is being shown as conferences are demanding educational experts to speak and teach like William and Aida Jackson. They are providing a narrative of how tech is changing education, career development and the hiring processes of people

of color and culture.

William and Aida Jackson, advocates of STEAM for several years, have spoken at conferences nationally and globally pre-pandemic, have been requested to speak and teach at several STEAM Conferences and to teach at STEAM

Camps at Florida State College of Jacksonville this summer.

They are speaking on Clubhouse in the room by Educ8World https://educ8.world/ connected with Clubhouse and the room Educ8 World. Connecting educators from around the world to share their knowledge, experiences, skills in preparing the next generation of STEAM leaders. The conference “STEAM Camp A Global Conversation,” held in July was attended

by over 5,000 ppl virtually from around the world.

William and Aida presentations were STEAM Camp: “Go STREAM XSTREAM in the Classroom,” how STEAM learning can be taught in schools with hands-on project based learning that enables youth to learn with the Arts, using Creativity and Digital Innovation and STEAM Camp “Creating STEAM Lessons with a Goal in Mind,” sharing how they teach Black, Brown and Indigenous youth to prepare for future careers that will be created by the

commercialization of Space and robot infusion.

Their free STEAM lessons with their partnership with The Microsoft Store and Jacksonville Public Libraries around their home of Jacksonville, Florida have been

recognized nationally and modeled globally.

Conferences and Professional Development have been changed for the future because of Clubhouse and other digital platforms that allow for the sharing of

ideas and experiences on a global scale with teachers.
