Talk summary

The STEMShare Community Learning Library answers a need to inform, support and guide nearly 80,000 educators and 8 million students across the NSW Department of Education. The overall objective is to integrate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning through robotics, computational thinking and other future focused learning strategies into the Department’s classrooms and learning spaces.

The vision of the Library is to help teachers explore, discover and share resources in an environment that offers a new experience to educators and students. The development team were challenged to use existing department Office 365 infrastructure to build an innovative space that set a new standard in both LX and UX design. The result; a one-stop-shop for communications, knowledge-based articles, learning, and curation for every educator and student serviced by the NSW Department of Education.
