The chapter gives an overview of a model of STEM that is being utilized in pre-service teacher preparation. This model draws on educational research in learning theory and inquiry-based learning and teaching and works to frame the criteria for quality STEM learning experiences. Understanding the vision for STEM education will illuminate the issues and possible strategies for using assistive technology in inclusive STEM classrooms. The chapter also provides examples of implementing various assistive technologies—no/low-tech devices, mid-tech devices, and high-tech devices—and examples of mixed and extended reality technologies that could be used in inclusive STEM education.
