Abstract:


STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is structured knowledge which has a correlation among elements of STEM knowledge. We already developed mathematics web site and successfully visualize knowledge structure of mathematics through network graph drawing. We are trying to scale up from mathematics to STEM. That is, we are starting to build a web based learning environment which integrates web pages containing elements of STEM knowledge by connecting with each other through hyperlinks. This web structure is suitable for searching and browsing web pages. Learners can grasp the correlation between elements of STEM knowledge easily and then understand STEM deeply by browsing integrated web materials. Consequently, learners are able to learn STEM subjects efficiently and effectively according to their ability and curiosity.
