What do you think has been the most profound literary change over the last decade and what societal externality has caused this? Would so love to hear your thoughts on this!

Hi Elisa. Thank you for taking time to chat with us. I currently teach "Internet of Things" technologies to high school youth and am a firm believer in STEAM-powered learning. Are there any resources you would recommend to inspire educators who are interweaving arts and science curricula?
