Abstract

This Special Issue of Eruasia Journal of Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education offers ten articles addressing issues that are currently emerging in Korea and that will be a continued focus for teacher educators and researchers in the years to come. The papers in this issue represent the efforts of 31 researchers, from four different countries and more than 18 universities and research institutes. The papers were selected to offer the international reader perspectives on a broad range of educational issues in Korea. These works highlight current trends in research in different STEM related disciplines, issues in teacher education and professional development, and they provide a socio-historical context for making sense of Korean students’ achievement in math and science on international comparative exams and on national assessments. Finally, this issue includes a special focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Education, Arts, and Mathematics) education.
